An attempt to break into a Missoula car wash netted the suspect no money, but did result in felony burglary charges, according to Missoula County Justice Court documents.
Tyrel J. Mosby, 20, was held pending $15,000 bail after being charged before Justice of the Peace John Odlin on Monday.
According to the charging affidavit, witnesses spotted someone trying to break into the Car Wash Too at 1515 Dearborn Ave. on Thursday. Officers investigated the scene and found Mosby hiding behind a tree nearby, the affidavit said.
“Defendant told Officer Jones that he broke into the car wash to steal money,” the affidavit stated. “He broke the lock off the door and went inside. Once he got inside, the lights went off so he left without stealing any money.”
