Notice To The Public-

The Fallon County Commission gives notice to the public that: A person who purposely and knowingly removes gravel from a county road can be prosecuted for THEFT, in violation of §45-6-301, MCA. The statute states, in relevant part: A person commits the offense of THEFT when a person purposely and knowingly obtains or exerts unauthorized control of property of the owner and has the purpose of depriving the owner of the property or uses the property in a manner that deprives the owner of the property.
Depending on whether it is a first, second or third offense, a person convicted of theft of property not exceeding $1,500 in value may be fined a possible $500 and imprisoned in the county jail up to 1 year. If the theft is of property that exceeds $1,500 in value and does not exceed $5,000 in value, a person could be fined up to $1,500 or be imprisoned in the state prison for a term up to 5 years, or both. If the theft is of property exceeding $5,000 in value or as part of a common scheme, a person could be fined up to $10,000 or be imprisoned in a state prison for a term not to exceed 10 years, or both.
The Commission would ask that persons not remove gravel from County roads. If you have information about theft of gravel from county roads, the Commission would encourage you to report the information to law enforcement.
