Montana pre-release walkaways arrested in Idaho
ST. ANTHONY, Idaho (AP) -- Officials in Fremont County say two men who walked
away from a Montana pre-release center were apprehended in southeastern Idaho
while driving a pickup truck that had been reported stolen.
The Idaho State Police says 22-year-old Jerron Michael Mitchell-Fuller of Glendive,
Montana, and 29-year-old Christopher Lee Etheridge of Billings, Montana., were
arrested early Thursday afternoon after a high-speed pursuit on U.S. Highway 20.
Shortly before 11 a.m., the Idaho State Police was notified of two walkaways
from the Great Falls Transition Center who might be driving a stolen Ford F250
pickup. A pickup matching that description filled up without paying for gas at a
station in Island Park and officers pursued it.
Both men face charges of eluding, possession of stolen property and petit theft.
