According to court documents, Pfaff is also being investigated for another burglary where she entered the Mountain Line transfer station and started lighting items on fire. Pfaff was also recently arrested for burglary after entering the Johnson St. Shelter, despite being trespassed, and stealing a phone. The officer noted that since January 1, 2024, Pfaff has been involved in 49 calls for service to MPD, including criminal offenses and medical complaints. 

When the officer arrived at the POV, she observed Pfaff walking away on the sidewalk. The officer placed Pfaff inside her patrol car and drove back to the POV. There, she spoke with several witness who stated Pfaff was throwing rocks inside and refused to leave. The officer asked Pfaff why she returned to the POV after being trespassed and Pfaff responded that she was let in by someone who lives there.   

On the way to jail, Pfaff became combative and referred to the officer and others as a “bunch of f***ing ni***rs.” She also allegedly told the officer, “I’ll get you.” The officer asked Pfaff what she meant by that and Pfaff repeated, “I’ll get you.” 

Pfaff is currently being charged with felony burglary. On March 1, 2024, she made her initial appearance in Missoula Justice Court and her bond was set at $10,000.
