Kalispell Man Released from Jail Quickly Arrested

By Beacon Staff

A Kalispell man who authorities say exited jail after a bond reduction hearing is back in jail after being arrested in connection with a four-person burglary less than three hours after his release.

Flathead County Deputy Attorney Kenneth Park says 30-year-old Brandon Stanfield left the Flathead County Detention Center Thursday afternoon after a district judge eliminated his bond.

Stanfield was being held on a felony charge of criminal distribution of dangerous drugs.

The Flathead County Sheriff’s Office says later on Thursday police responded to a home burglary and then followed footprints in the snow, eventually leading to the arrest of Stanfield and another man.
