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

The incident happened at an apartment complex off 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. Law enforcement eventually arrested both subjects and cleared the apartment using gas.
