Public Help Requested in Search for Bomb Scare Suspect, Ninemile Thefts
After a pretty busy weekend, the Missoula County Sheriff's Department is asking the public for clues to help them solve two cases from the northwest corner of the county.
Sheriff's department spokeswoman Paige Pavlone said that there are a lot of unknowns about a robbery in the Ninemile area.
"A house was broken into, and it sounds like this house was under construction... a washer and dryer were stolen from the residence. Also, a checkbook was stolen and checks were written at different establishments around town. So if anyone has information about this burglary out in Ninemile, call the Sheriff's Office or Crimestoppers at 721-4444."
Also, authorities are still looking for leads about a bomb threat at a local school on March 20.
"We're also looking for information about the bomb threat that happened at Frenchtown School. We had a couple folks call in about some possible suspect information, but we're encouraging parents to talk to their kids. If anybody has heard anything or has any information either give the Sheriff's office a call, or talk to the school administrators."
If the bomb threat was written by a juvenile, authorities are limited in the amount of information that can be released to the public, however, the individual involved will have to appear before a Montana youth court.
