University of Montana on Lockdown after Early Morning Robberies

MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) — The University of Montana and several schools in Missoula are on a “lock-in-place” while police search for the suspect or suspects in two armed robberies.

Detective Sgt. Travis Welsh says the Motel 6 and the Taco Bell restaurant on East Broadway were robbed shortly after 9 a.m. Thursday.

Police say one of the suspects reportedly looked like escaped Gallatin County rape suspect Kevin Briggs. Missoula police were looking for Briggs after Bozeman police learned he might have links to the Missoula area.

A suspect with a gun and no jacket was seen running along Arthur Avenue near the University at about 10 a.m., when the temperature was minus 17.

Welsh says the suspect may try to enter a building to get warm, so area residents were asked to lock their doors and businesses were asked to secure their buildings.
