Standoff ends with manís arrest

Larry Mathew Hanson, age 45, of Libby, is currently being held at the Lincoln County Detention Center. Hanson has been charged with Violation of a Protective Order - 3rd Offense, $100,000 bond and is being held on a Felony Bench Warrant issued by District Court Judge James Wheelis with a bail of $10,000,000 (ten million dollars).

Thursday night, Sept. 4th about midnight, Lincoln County deputies and Libby police officers responded to find three men outside of a residence at River's Edge Trailer Court on highway 37, north of Libby. They were concerned about the well-being of a woman inside and were able to determine that Hanson was inside the home, in violation of a restraining order issued by Lincoln County Justice of the Peace Jay Sheffield. Deputies were able to make temporary visual contact with the woman in the house.

Hanson had recently been disguising himself in order to visit the home unnoticed.

A search warrant was obtained from Justice Court. Telephone contact was made with Hanson, who was in the home.

Sheriff Roby Bowe negotiated Hanson's surrender to deputies at approximately seven hours later about 7:05 a.m.
