A woman told police Tuesday morning that she let Zachariah Thomas Bartsch, 33, of Butte, borrow her vehicle for a short time, but he had not returned it.
Later in the morning, officers stopped the vehicle at Colorado and Aluminum streets and discovered that both Bartsch and his passenger, Winter Rose Clark, 21, of Charlo, had outstanding warrants.
Bartsch had a Montana Highway Patrol warrant and a criminal contempt warrant out of Butte Justice Court. Clark was wanted on a contempt warrant from Butte City Court.
They were both jailed and the vehicle was returned to its owner.
