Arrests Made in a Rash of Vehicle Thefts in Bozeman Area
Four subjects have been arrested for a rash of vehicle thefts at local parks and trailheads. Over the past few weeks, a number of hikers have reported vehicle windows being broken out while they were out on the trail.
The suspects stole items of personal property, including personal identifications of the vehicle owners, before fleeing the area. The four subjects who were arrested are being held in the Gallatin County Detention Center charged with criminal mischief and tampering with or fabricating physical evidence, both felony offenses.
Local law enforcement is encouraging anyone who suspects their vehicle may have been unlawfully entered, even if no theft occurred, to contact the Bozeman Police Department at 406-582-2000, or the Gallatin County Sheriff’s Office at 406-582-2100.
