Police reports:


A woman punched an employee of Stokes in the face when he told her she wasn't supposed to be on the property, then hit him again, police said.

The worker recognized Jeanette Lynn Voss, 32, of Butte, in the parking lot around 8 p.m. Sunday and told her she was not supposed to be there. She hit him in the face and walked away.

The employee followed her in the parking lot and she came at him again, punching him in the mouth and trying to grab his cell phone as he called police. They arrived and arrested her for misdemeanor simple assault. She was released around midnight after posting $585 bond.


Police say a woman who was seen on surveillance footage stealing mail from a mailbox was arrested a short time later.

A resident in the 200 block of South Washington Street showed police video of two women stealing mail around 5 p.m. Saturday. About 30 minutes later, an officer spotted one of the women — Katarina Ann Heath, 27 — on West Gold Street and arrested her for misdemeanor theft.

While taking her to jail, officers found a baggie on her that had 9 ounces of a white crystal substance believed to be methamphetamine, so she was also booked on a felony drug-possession charge.

Police had not located the other female as of late Monday morning and Heath was still in jail with bail set at $1,085.


Residents called police around 8 p.m. Saturday saying a man with a restraining order was trying to get in their house.

They told police that Weston Clark Krizan, 34, of Butte, was not allowed at the house in the 1800 block of Lafayette Avenue but was banging on the back door saying he was coming in.

Officers arrived and said Krizan was very paranoid and appeared to be on drugs, possibly meth. He refused to give his name several times and resisted arrest, forcing police to wrestle him to the ground.

He was booked for resisting arrest, obstructing a peace officer and violating a protective order — misdemeanor offenses — and a felony for violating probation.

He was still in jail as of late Monday morning with no bond set.
