MAN THREATENS PROPERTY COMPANY
Police responded to a property management firm in Uptown Butte around noon Friday after employees said a man threatened a worker with a pistol. The man, who police identified as Charlie Hand, 37, had left by the time police arrived but was pulled over nearby. Police said Hand told them he had a pistol on him and had carried it into the office but had not brandished it at any employees. Hand was arrested for felony assault with a weapon and carrying a concealed weapon without a permit, a misdemeanor. Police said Hand is a tenant of the property management company.
SUSPECTED CAR THIEF ARRESTED
Officers responding to a report of a prowler on Raccoon Way early Thursday morning arrested a suspected car thief wanted for nearly a year. Lonnie Boyd, 51, was spotted driving a stolen car in May 2016 but fled from police, eventually ditching the car — in which police found drugs — and escaping on foot. Boyd was found in a parked car Thursday and arrested on warrants for felony and misdemeanor drug possession, felony theft, felony criminal endangerment, misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia, and misdemeanor assault.
