Man arrested in child-abuse case
David Cuchine, 29, of Butte was transferred to Butte county jail Tuesday afternoon after being arrested in Anaconda on a warrant stemming from a child-abuse case.
Police said Cuchine has been cited with felony assault on a minor in connection with a 2015 incident in which his infant child was treated at St. James Healthcare for seizures and other injuries.
Hospital staff notified police, who have been investigating the incident since then.
The warrant was issued Feb. 17. Butte police said they did not know the exact date of Cuchine's arrest in Anaconda.
Police say two vehicles were reported stolen early this week.
The first was reported stolen at 10:30 p.m. Tuesday, from an employee of a bar located at the corner of Montana and Second Streets. The employee told officers that when she finished her shift and emerged from the bar she noticed her 1994 GMC Suburban was missing.
The other vehicle, a ’98 pickup truck, was reported stolen at 8:30 a.m. Wednesday. The owner of the vehicle told officers the truck had been parked on the corner of Alabama and Quartz streets for several months and that it had last been seen there around 10 p.m. Tuesday.
The two vehicles have yet to be recovered, police said.
Police arrested Cynthia Boggess, 55, of Butte for misdemeanor trespassing after the 55-year-old returned to a residence where she was previously asked to leave.
Police say they responded to the 1500 block of Delaware Avenue in Butte Tuesday night after receiving a complaint from a resident who said that Boggess was pounding on the windows of his or her residence.
When officers arrived, they asked Boggess to leave. However, police said, she returned a few hours later, at which point officers apprehended her and took her to Butte county jail, where she remained as of Wednesday morning.
