On the afternoon of 09/28/2018, your Polson Police Department received anonymous information that Eli Stops also known as “Sleepy Loko” was hiding from law enforcement at 608 2nd Street West. Mr. Stops was wanted by the US Marshal Service for an outstanding federal warrant. Polson officers went to the residence in an effort to locate Mr. Stops. He was seen inside the residence by officers. Officers entered the residence at which point Mr. Stops concealed and barricaded himself inside the attic. A perimeter was established and the proper procedures were followed. Mr. Stops was positively confirmed as being in the attic. Negotiations went on for a couple of hours with no success. Eventually oleoresin capsicum (OC) was sprayed into the attic. Negotiations resumed after the OC deployment and Mr. Stops surrendered to law enforcement without further incident. Mr. Stops was transferred into the custody of the US Marshal Service. We would like to thank the following agencies who helped to bring this incident to a peaceful resolution; Flathead Tribal Police Department, Ronan Police Department, Montana Highway Patrol, Polson City Fire Department, Polson Ambulance Crew, Lake County Emergency Communications and the patient residents of the neighborhood. “The level of commitment and courage your law enforcement team showed today is nothing short of extraordinary. I am very happy of our department and the assisting agencies.” – Wade Nash Chief of Police.
