Missoula, MT (KGVO-AM News) - On March 29, 2023, a Missoula Police Department officer conducted a traffic stop at the Johnson Street Shelter. The officer checked the history of that vehicle and saw it was recently involved in a warrant call. The officer also ran the background on the three car occupants over the radio with dispatch. The officer learned that Anthony Gonzalo and Juliet Maisch were both on probation. 

The officer asked Maisch if she would be willing to step out of the vehicle and speak with him. He informed Maisch she was not under arrest, but provided her with a Miranda Warning.

Another officer came to speak with Maisch and mentioned seeing visible drug paraphernalia in the vehicle. The original officer observed a used needle in the rear passenger seat area that was in a water bottle. It was near where Maisch was sitting. He also observed what appeared to be a loaded needle in the passenger door pocket as well as discarded burnt foil.
