"Officers responded to a report of drug activity at an apartment building in the 1500 block of Earnest Avenue, when they arrived they made contact at one of the apartments with two persons, one of whom was Identified as 23-year-old Kyle Flink," said Missoula Police Public Information Officer Travis Welsh.
