- Stabbing: Fort Benton police have arrested 25-year-old Casey Carlos and charged him with deliberate homicide after he allegedly stabbed and killed 21-year-old Fletcher Courtnage early Saturday morning.
- Rollover: One person died in a rollover near the intersection of Stockett Road and Cottonwood Coulee Road in Cascade County on Sunday. The MHP says that the driver, a 22-year old woman from Belt, died after being ejected from the vehicle when it rolled. A male passenger was also in the vehicle; officials say he suffered injuries from the crash, but the more serious concern is hypothermia after being stranded in the cold for several hours. The nature and extent of his injuries has not been released.
- Icy Plunge: On Saturday night Montana Highway Patrol responded to a call regarding a vehicle that had gone through the ice on Hauser Lake. Two men from Helena had left a bonfire out on the lake and drove a Subaru Impreza across the ice near the docks by the Lakeside On Hauser bar. The car went through the ice and the two men managed to roll down the windows as it was going under water. Neither man sustained any injuries.
- Walkaway: Dexton Kaine Sinclair has been reported as a walkaway from the Great Falls Pre-Release Center. Sinclair is 26 years old, 5'8" tall, weighs about 160 pounds, and an Arabic symbol tattoo on his left shoulder. If you see Sinclair or know of his whereabouts, call the Great Falls Police Department at 771-1180 or the Pre-Release Center at 727-0944.
- Safety: Great Falls Neighborhood Council 5 is holding a public meeting on Monday night aimed at making the streets safer for its children. Speakers from law enforcement, city staff, school administration, and a panel of fifth and sixth grade students will gather in the Mountain View Elementary School gymnasium at 7 p.m.
- Helena Business: On Thursday, the Helena City Commission will hold a public meeting to discuss its policy for semi-permanent food service establishments, such as coffee kiosks. Kevin Keeler owns The Coffee Shack on 11th Avenue and a drive-thru coffee hut across from the Colonial hotel. He thinks it's unfair that the city changed its policy and that those other coffee kiosks have been allowed to operate at an economic advantage.
- Stalking Awareness: January marks National Stalking Awareness Month, and Victim-Witness Assistance Services in Great Falls is hoping to shine some light on this national and local problem. Over the past five years, Cascade County has seen around 300 reported cases of stalking; that does not include harassment charges or incidents that go unreported. Victim-Witness Assistance Services encourages people to take precautions to protect their privacy, including setting privacy settings on social media and to be aware of those around you.
