Missoula man on probation gets caught with liquid meth


On June 17, 2022, a Missoula Police Department officer was dispatched to an apartment in the 1000 block of East Broadway after a neighbor reported hearing a woman yell “no, stop!” in a scary way. Police public information officer Lydia Arnold picks up the story.

“Officers responded to a report of a physical disturbance at an apartment complex,” Arnold said. “When the officers knocked on the front door, a man, Macio Brooks, answered the door for the officers. Brooks spoke to officers and provided a statement. At the scene, officers observed broken glass on the floor and observed a person inside the apartment clutching his foot in pain.

Brooks said there was no argument, but the woman stepped on a piece of broken glass, which caused her pain.

“Brooks is currently on probation,” Arnold said. “Probation and parole got added. Based on the information provided, probation requested a search of Brooks, his residence and his vehicle. During the probation search, drug paraphernalia and dangerous drugs, which tested positive for presumptive methamphetamine, were located. Brooks was transported to the Missoula County Detention Center.

An officer searched, among other things, a vehicle parked in front of the apartment and registered to Brooks. Brooks said he was the only one who used the vehicle. A Nike bag sat on the front passenger side. In the bag were a black digital scale, a butane torch, a glass bulb pipe, and two hypodermic needles containing a clear liquid substance. The liquid tested positive for methamphetamine.

Brooks is currently charged with one count of criminal possession of dangerous drugs.
