Threatening manager at Walmart
Police say a Butte man left Walmart with more than $1,000 worth of merchandise he didn’t pay for Tuesday night and threatened a store risk manager when confronted.
Officers say the store provided a photo of the man and probation and parole officers determined it was 34-year-old Michael Wayne Kendrick II.
He had a GPS monitor on his ankle and based on information it provided, police tracked Kendrick down at the Leonard Apartments on West Granite Street. He was arrested on a complaint of felony robbery, which carries a maximum 40-year prison term if formally charged by prosecutors.

He was arrested for felony possession of dangerous drugs and possession with intent to distribute and for misdemeanor possession of dangerous drugs. He was still in jail as of Wednesday morning.
Wanted on warrant
