KALISPEL, Mont. (AP) - A Martin City man suspected of dealing drugs is looking for money after a judge ruled he couldn’t have the $6,000 seized during his arrest for bail.

The Daily Inter Lake reports (https://bit.ly/1SMEtrd ) that 52-year-old Scott Downing asked that his bail be reduced from $100,000 and that the $6,000 in suspected drug payments seized at the time of his arrest be returned to him. He has been in the Flathead County Detention Center since Jan. 25 on a theft charge.

Downing was arrested in a vehicle that had been reported stolen. At that time he also had 12 grams of suspected heroin, five grams of methamphetamine, a digital scale and the money.

Prosecutors say a drug charges will likely be filed once results are returned from the Montana Crime Lab.
