MISSOULA — The public has been asked to avoid the Frenchtown mill area as the search for a final theft suspect continues.

Jordan Randal Christensen is 6 foot, 195 pounds, with brown eyes and black hair and is believed to be in dark colored clothing.

The Missoula County Sheriff's Office reported two suspects for felony theft have been detained, but law enforcement is still looking for a third.

That third suspect is believed to be wearing dark clothes and is considered armed and dangerous.

The search for two suspects started just after 4 p.m. today near the former Smurfit Stone mill along the Clark Fork River. The first suspect was already in custody at that time.

Authorities ask residents in the area to make sure homes are lit and secure.

The authorities have said to not attempt to make contact or approach anyone matching the description, but to call 911 immediately.
