A Montana man found himself behind bars in Lincoln County following a traffic stop.

At around 2:30 am on Wednesday morning, a Lincoln County Sheriff’s Deputy observed a vehicle speeding on North Jeffers Street in North Platte.

A traffic stop was initiated at the intersection of Highway 30 and Hall School Road.  Deputies made contact with the vehicle’s driver, 58-year-old Don Stalkfleet of Roundup, MT.

Deputies discovered that Stalkfleet was driving on a suspended license, and the vehicle was not registered to him.

Prior to having the vehicle towed, Deputies took inventory of it’s contents and found four long guns in the vehicle.

A check of Stalkfleet’s criminal history showed that he was a convicted felon.

He was arrested for being a Felon in Possession of a Firearm and incarcerated at the Lincoln County Detention Center.
