$50K bail for Billings man allegedly possessing meth, firearms

Posted: Updated:

BOZEMAN - A Billings man arrested in Bozeman after methamphetamine and firearms were found in the vehicle he was traveling in appeared in Gallatin County Justice Court on Wednesday.

According to charging documents, a Bozeman patrol officer conducted a traffic stop on 47-year-old Jason Sullivan and two passengers around 2 a.m. Wednesday.

The officer reports that Sullivan was driving erratically on N. 7th Avenue near Baxter Lane. The officer ran the car’s plates and found it was registered to a different vehicle out of Billings.

A male passenger told the officer he recently purchased the vehicle from his ex-girlfriend, but the vehicle came back as registered to a different person altogether. According to the officer, neither Sullivan, the male passenger, or a third female passenger had valid IDs.

The man claiming to be the owner of the vehicle gave permission for the officer to search it. Drug paraphernalia and two firearms were found in the search -- one in the backseat, and a second in a bag allegedly belonging to Sullivan.

The officer said Sullivan claimed to have found the firearm that was in the bag. Sullivan was then arrested for theft of mislaid property.

At the Gallatin County Detention Center, officers conducted an inventory search of Sullivan’s bag and found two small baggies containing a substance that tested positive for methamphetamine.

Sullivan is facing a felony charge of possession of dangerous drugs. His bail was set at $50,000.
