Domestic Disturbance Call Leads To Drug Bust
A Helena man is behind bars Thursday after a Lewis and Clark County deputies respond to a domestic disturbance turned marijuana bust.
Sheriff Leo Dutton says, as deputies entered the trailer home on Gold Dust Drive this afternoon, they smelled marijuana inside the home. Deputies arrested Cole Selleck, 31, for domestic partner family assault and then got a warrant to search the trailer for drugs. Later this evening, with the help of the Missouri River Drug Task Force, deputies found drugs in the home.
Sheriff Leo Dutton: "They did recover 7 very mature plants that were ready to harvest so probably made about, between, possibly a pound of marijuana."
Dutton says drug related charges are pending since the incident is still under investigation. He says incidents like this where a routine call results in drug charges happen often.
"At least three time a week a simple traffic stop, a warning lead to an arrest for narcotics or a warrant of something like that."
Selleck should appear in court Friday.
