Two people were arrested late Sunday night in Missoula after law enforcement tried to serve an arrest warrant for an individual.

The incident happened at an apartment complex on the 1400 block of East Broadway.

US Marshals had received a tip that someone with a warrant was in one of the apartments in the complex.



When police arrived they discovered the person they were searching for was gone, but a man in the apartment complex had a warrant out for his arrest -- and the homeowner also had violations that warranted her arrest.

The man refused to come out, so police awaited a signed warrant from a judge to enter the property and arrest him. Officers eventually arrested both people and cleared the apartment using gas.

Their names have not yet been released; we will update you if we get more information.
