Pizza delivery car stolen

Shortly before midnight Thursday, a man delivering a pizza at a residence in the 1600 block of Thornton Avenue had his vehicle stolen.

The resident told the driver he did not order a pizza, and while they were speaking, the driver saw a man get into his vehicle and start to drive away.

The delivery man attempted to stop him by grabbing onto the door but the suspect continued driving, dragging the victim who received knee injuries.

On Sunday, the victim’s car, a 2008 Subaru Legacy, was located in Billings during a routine traffic stop. One man is in custody and another man fled the scene.

Restraining order violation

Police responded to a call at 2:20 p.m. Sunday about a violation of a restraining order.

Officers arrived at a residence in the 200 block of Greenwood Avenue and were told that Lenard Ray Lillyblad, 64, of Butte had been at this residence and threatened to kill the alleged victim.

The alleged victim told officers that Lillyblad was walking toward Rowe Road, which is where he was found, arrested and transported to the Butte Detention Center.

This is Lillyblad’s third or subsequent offense of violating a restraining order.
