The Lincoln County Sheriff's Office has linked one of the many recent home burglaries to Casey M. Decker, a suspect who is already in jail for fleeing from police and trying to fight his way out of an arrest in October.

Decker, 26, of 118 White Ave., was arrested last month after he led police on a high-speed chase through Libby and tried to ram his SUV into one of the deputy's cruisers blocking his path, according to the sheriff's office.

At that time he was also charged with resisting arrest and possessing dangerous drugs, including methamphetamine

On Nov. 9, deputies carried out a search warrant at Decker's residence after receiving information that the house contained property stolen from Jeff Williams, a victim of one of the burglaries.

Deputies found the stolen property, which included several firearms and a "duffel bag overflowing with boxes of ammunition," according to an affidavit.

Also arrested was Alicia M. White, who is charged with felony possession of stolen property and possession of dangerous drugs.
