The FBI is asking for help in finding a felon wanted for alleged involvement in trafficking meth in Montana.

Chase Ryan Storlie, 33, was charged with multiple felonies relating to possession and distribution of methamphetamine and possession of a firearm on April 26, the FBI reported in a news release.

He was charged with failure to appear at his court-ordered initial appearance and arraignment on June 9 in Helena, Montana, and a federal arrest warrant was issued for Storlie in the United States District Court of Missoula, Montana.

Authorities believe Storlie lived in Spokane for some time in 2012. He has lived in Deer Lodge, Montana and Coeur d’Alene, FBI spokeswoman Sandra Yi Baker wrote in an email. The FBI believes he may still have ties in Coeur d’Alene.

The FBI described Storlie as 5’ 9’’ to 5’ 10’’ with brown eyes, weighing 195 to 235 pounds. He has worked as a kitchen worker,

If anyone has information on Storlie, the FBI asks that they contact their local FBI office or nearest American Embassy or Consulate.
