Youpee Charged With Theft Attempt

The U.S. Attorney’s Office announced Friday, Aug. 11, that a Poplar man was arraigned and appeared this week before a U.S. Magistrate on indictments handed down by the Grand Jury or on criminal complaints.

Appearing in Great Falls before U.S. Magistrate Judge John T. Johnson and pleading not guilty on Aug. 8 was: Henry Gabryl Youpee Jr., 20, of Poplar, on charges of burglary. Court records say Youpee broke into Independence Bank of Poplar on Oct. 30, 2022, for the sole purpose of committing theft.

A trial for the defendant has been set for Oct. 10 in Great Falls.

If convicted of the most serious crime, Youpee faces a maximum of 20 years in prison, a $50,000 fine and three years of supervised release. Youpee was detained pending further proceedings. The FBI, Roosevelt County Sheriff’s Office and Fort Peck Tribes’ Department of Law and Justice investigated the case.

The charging documents are merely accusations and defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
