A man is in jail in Glasgow, charged in the burglary of the Fort Peck Post Office last year and for damaging the rest area west of Glasgow.
David Michael High, 39, is facing one count of felony theft, two counts of misdemeanor theft and two counts of misdemeanor criminal mischief. He has made an initial appearance in Justice Court and the case will be sent to District Court.
He was brought to Glasgow last week after he finished serving a sentence in Missoula on felony charges of theft and forgery.
A number of mailboxes were broken into at Fort Peck on Dec. 6 or 7 last year, according to Valley County Sheriff Glen Meier. Some of the mail that was stolen was found near the Corps of Engineers’ administration building at Fort Peck. A video of a stolen check being cashed in Wolf Point helped identify the suspect.
At the rest area, High allegedly broke a display case of maps and pamphlets and took items.
High, a Poplar resident who was originally from Washington, was found in jail in Missoula, doing time for breaking into storage units.
