POLSON – On the afternoon of Friday, Aug. 31, the Polson Police Department with the help of the Flathead Tribal Police Department conducted a warrant service at 608 2nd Street West.  This search warrant concludes a short-term drug investigation that originated from citizen complaints.

Several items were seized as a result:  methamphetamine, prescription pills, marijuana, several items of drug paraphernalia such as snort tubes, pipes, and syringes. No children were in the residence and nobody was injured during the execution of the search warrant.  

Seven individuals were arrested as a result of the raid. Tiana Buehl was arrested for distribution of dangerous drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia. Tru Schultz was arrested for possession of dangerous drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia. Jordan Morgan was arrested for distribution of dangerous drugs, possession of dangerous drugs (two counts) and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Devon Dechenne was arrested on three outstanding arrest warrants.

Polson police officers have been actively listening and working with members of this neighborhood to address crime, violence, drug abuse, and the fear of crime. This strengthening of police-community partnerships greatly aided the success of this investigation.

“We appreciate all those who came forward sending the message that together, as a united community, we will protect our community and create a peaceful harmony,” Polson Police Chief Wade Nash said.
