Hot pursuit

Wednesday night around 8 p.m., U.S. marshals were attempting to arrest an unidentified man who had a warrant for his arrest out of Great Falls.

Butte police were asked to assist in his capture.

During the pursuit, the suspect pushed a man, who was holding groceries, down to the ground and attempted to take his car, but the keys were already out of the vehicle.

He then ran in and out of a home on the 900 block of Broadway Street.

Eventually, U.S. marshals tased the suspect. He was then taken into custody and taken back to Great Falls.

Man with warrants recognized

While assisting in the arrest of Josh Hook, 27, who had a warrant out of Anaconda-Deer Lodge County, an officer noticed Luke Wayne Guccione, 37, of Butte driving past in a blue truck.

Guccione, who has three arrest warrants out of Lewis & Clark County, was stopped in the 600 block of Idaho Street and from there, taken to jail.

While being processed at the detention center, a small bag of meth was found in his possession. A felony possession of dangerous drugs was added to the list.

Felony parole violation

Officers were asked to assist probation and parole at a residence in the 1900 block of Texas Ave.

When they arrived, Rickey Rinker, 39, was already in handcuffs.

Besides a felony parole violation, he was jailed for felony possession of dangerous drugs (meth) and criminal possession of drug paraphernalia.

Harassing customers

On Wednesday afternoon, a call came in to the detention center regarding a man harassing customers at the Town Pump, 2711 Harrison Ave.

Police soon found the alleged culprit, Larry Jason White, 48, who had a warrant for his arrest out of Butte City Court. He was also jailed for resisting arrest.

Car recovered

Back on Jan. 24, police received a report of a vehicle taken from a residence on Rampart Drive.

Not only did the car owner file a police report, she posted it on Facebook as well, photo and all.

That paid off, as someone notified her that the car could be found at the Legion Oasis, 3400 Hill. And sure enough — there it was.

Fence attempt

Police received a suspicious call shortly after 9 a.m. Wednesday about a male attempting to climb a fence on the 600 block of Park Street.

He was still attempting the feat when police arrived, who told the climber to head on down the road.

Ride home

On Wednesday night, an intoxicated person was asked several times to leave Arby’s, 3131 Harrison Ave., but each time, he refused.

Police arrived and offered him a ride home, which he readily accepted.

Unruly males

Four males were yelling so loud on the 500 block of Orphan Girl that residents called the detention center to complain.

Police arrived and told the foursome to move along and so they did.
