Tip on Milton-Freewater Assault Leads to Stolen Car Arrest in Montana

Posted: Updated:

MILTON-FREEWATER, Ore.  - The Umatilla County Sheriff's Office continues to follow up on tips related to last week's home invasion assault in Milton-Freewater, including one tip that lead investigators to Montana. 

31-year-Dallas Smith was arrested by deputies in Montana for driving a vehicle that had been reported stolen from Milton-Freewater. 

A 19-year-old woman with Smith was also arrested on charges related to the stolen vehicle.

Sheriff Terry Rowan of Umatilla County says there is not enough evidence to tie Smith or the woman to the Jan. 30 attack on 79-year-old Joyce Key at her home northwest of Milton-Freewater.
    
He says investigators are following up on tips, and asks anyone with information to contact the sheriff's office.
