Heather Houston has been charged with two felonies after allegedly stealing a front-end loader and driving it into an apartment complex in Great Falls.
The Great Falls Police Department responded to the Fox Hollow Apartment Complex on Sunday morning where they found 34-year-old Houston had stolen the loader from the 3100 block of Rainbow Dam Road and drove it across town to the apartments.
GFPD said Houston then ran over a fence, damaged a car, and hit the side of the complex. She was reportedly topless as she elevated the front end to the second floor and crawled into an apartment before coming back out.
When police arrived, they arrested Houston and charged her with felony criminal mischief and felony criminal endangerment.
Many witnesses, including KRTV employee Andy Ashcraft, said it was quite the morning: “She actually ran into the side of my window, it shook the whole house. That’s when we went running outside thinking, ‘We better get out of here in case the building comes down,’” Ashcraft said.
There were no reports of injuries.
Additional charges may be filed by both the Cascade County Sheriff’s Office and the GFPD.
