Possession with intent to sell
Around 11:20 a.m. Wednesday, police assisted probation and parole officers with the search of a residence on the 700 block of South Wyoming Street.
The search reportedly revealed a syringe, a pipe, a small packet of heroin, and several packets of methamphetamine.
Due to the way in which the methamphetamine was allegedly packaged, police charged two people at the residence — Brett Wayne Eby, 36, of Butte, and Gina Larae Kern, 42, of Butte — with possession with intent to sell. The two were also charged with parole violations and possession of drug paraphernalia.
On Wednesday afternoon, police responded with probation and parole officers to a report of a disturbance on the 10 block of West Galena Street.
Upon arrival, police reportedly found the door open and saw a male who was inside the residence flee the scene.
Police reportedly handcuffed the other person inside the residence — Roselyn Trottier, 28, of Butte — and conducted a search.
After allegedly finding drug paraphernalia, marijuana, and a small amount of methamphetamine, Trottier was arrested and charged with possession of dangerous drugs, possession of drug paraphernalia, and a parole violation.
The male who fled the scene was not apprehended.
Aggravated driving under the influence
On Wednesday, around 7:45 p.m., police reportedly clocked a vehicle travelling 60 mph in a 35 mph zone near the intersection of Grand and Harrison avenues.
Though the driver allegedly attempted to elude police for a short time, police were able to pull him over in the parking lot of Taco John's.
Police suspected the driver, Alan Robert Cox, 28, of Butte, was under the influence of alcohol, but he declined a Breathalyzer test. After taking Cox into custody, police allegedly found that his blood alcohol content was more than twice the legal limit.
Cox was charged with aggravated driving under the influence and careless driving.
