Billings Landlord, Paul Corcoran called Billings Police to the address of 4207 Vaughn lane regarding possible drug activity at one of his properties. One of his tenants, he suspected, was involved with drug activity.
Billings Police Officer Contreraz responded to the address.
Corcoran told the Officer that it was his tenant's boyfriend who was not on the lease and that he did not want him on his property. Paul Cocoran wanted a no-trespass warning issued to Michael Taylor Holwell.
His legal tenant who is on the lease is Tanya Vanatta. Vanatta's boyfriend's name is Michael Taypor Holwell.
Officer Contreraz observed Tanya walking out towards the street and away from the house.
Billings Officer Contreraz, advised Tanya why he was there. Tanya denied having anything to do with drugs.
At about the same time Vanatta's boyfriend Michael Taylor Holwell, walked towards his motorcycle in an attempt to leave the area.
Officer Contraeraz told Holwell, that he needed to issue him a no trespass warning before he left.
Holwell started denying that he was involved in any drug activity, but while advising this to the Officer, Holwell's body's actions and motions suddenly changed and was acting extremely jittery.
Based on his behavior, Officer Contreraz suspected that Holwell was under the influence of drugs. Holwell told the Officer that he was having an anxiety attack.
Holwell ran into the house and Officer Contreraz followed him. Holwell ran downstairs into the bathroom. Officer Contreraz yelled for Holwell to stop, but Holwell continued to the bathroom and quickly shut the door.
Officer Contreraz could hear the toilet flushing. When Holwell came out of the bathroom, his hands appeared wet.
Officer Contreraz asked him if he had flushed drugs down the toilet and Holwell stated "yes" he did. He told Officer Contreraz that he was afraid of going to jail.
According to Court records, Holwell is currently on probation for an unrelated incident.
At the Detention Center Holwell was found to have a glass pipe on him in his pocket, with about an eighth of an ounce in weight of Marijuana.
