GREAT FALLS — Gary Herbert Tremblay has been charged in Great Falls after he was found driving a vehicle that had been reported stolen.
Court documents say that on Thursday at about 2 a.m., a Cascade County Sheriffs deputy was following a truck on Central Avenue West when it became evasive upon seeing him. The deputy attempted to close the distance between his patrol vehicle and the truck. When the truck had gone over the interstate and out of the deputy's view, it increased speed, and by doing so, increased the gap between them.
The deputy closed the gap and saw the vehicle traveling at approximately 55 miles per hour in a 40 mile per hour zone. He initiated a traffic stop at the 2100 block of Central Avenue West.
The driver of the vehicle - identified as Tremblay - told the deputy that he had no driver's license. Dispatch advised that the vehicle was stolen, and that Tremblay's privilege to drive was revoked as a habitual offender. The value of the vehicle is over $1500.
Court documents say that Tremblay is a multistate offender, and currently listed as a fugitive in Nevada.
He has convictions for Trespassing (M) and Breaking into Auto or Tanks where Fuel Stored (F) in South Carolina. He is pending sentencing for felony theft in a separate case, and bond has been revoked several times for failure to appear. He was out on bond in that matter when he committed the offense listed above.
Tremblay is charged with felony theft, habitual offender operating a motor vehicle, and speeding.
