Armed robbery suspect arrested
July 23, 2014
Officers arrested a suspect in connection to the armed robbery of a Havre pharmacy Monday.
Arlene Dawn Morsette, 30, has been arrested in connection to the robbery on charges of armed robbery, criminal possession of dangerous drugs, criminal possession with intent to distribute and assault with a deadly weapon.
Acting Police Chief Gabe Matosich said this morning there will likely be more charges as the investigation is completed: tampering with evidence and use of property subject to forfeiture.
Morsette was taken into custody around 3 p.m. Tuesday and was taken to the Hill County Detention Center.
Officers were called to Western Drug at 12:59 p.m. Monday to respond to a report that they had just been robbed of money and drugs by a 5-foot slender woman wearing a green hoodie and a red bandana across the lower portion of her face.
The suspect escaped officers in a 2000-model green or blue minivan.
A samaritan said he was behind two vehicles matching the description at a Havre intersection and chose to follow one.
When officers initiated a felony stop on the tracked vehicle, they found it was not the one they were looking for.
Officers are still unsure of how much money and drugs were taken from the pharmacy.
