Hill County sheriff's deputies and agents of the Montana Criminal Investigations Bureau arrested a Lloyd man Friday on a charge of theft by deception of an elderly Havre resident.
Hill County Justice of the Peace Lane Hauge ordered Warren Hammons, 35, held on $150,000 bond. The complaint filed by the Hill County Attorney's Office Friday asked that a large bond be set because of the victim's fear of retaliation and a risk that Hammons may leave the area.
The felony charge against Hammons has a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and a fine of $50,000.
