POPLAR - A Fort Peck Tribal officer has indicated he will plead guilty next week to burglarizing the Fort Peck Tribal Law and Justice Building.
Mikkel Shields, 33, has been charged in U.S. District Court in Great Falls with four counts of burglary.
As part of a plea agreement, Shields will only plead guilty to a single count.
According to court documents, Shields went into the Poplar facility unlawfully with the intent to commit theft on four occasions in September of 2017.
The documents do not state what items Shields intended to steal or why.
It's also unclear whether any criminal cases were affected by Shields' actions.
Shields graduated the Montana Law Enforcement Academy in 2013, according to the Montana Department of Justice.
It's unclear if he is still employed as an officer.
