Second suspect arrested in Sitting Duck robbery

Print Article

A Bigfork woman was arrested Tuesday morning in connection with the robbery of a bar in Woods Bay that occurred on Jan. 29.

Crystal Dolar, 33, has been charged with solicitation of armed robbery and tampering with a witness, along with a juvenile who was originally charged with the robbery.

Solicitation of armed robbery is charged when a suspect allegedly “commands, encourages or facilitates” a crime.

If convicted, Dolar faces up to 40 years in Montana State prison and a $50,000 fine.

The juvenile suspect was arrested after he allegedly entered the Sitting Duck Bar, pointed a handgun at employees and patrons, demanded money and then fled on foot.

Lake County Undersheriff Ben Woods said the allegedly stolen money has not yet been recovered.

The juvenile is expected to appear in court Thursday and is currently in custody at the Missoula County Juvenile Detention Facility, according to Woods.
