Harry Paul Mottsman, 55, aka Sam Haley Rose co-founder of Alternative One, has been arrested for an outstanding felony warrant in Flathead County for allegedly forging checks.
“We have been investigating him (Mottsman) for about a week,” Lincoln County Sheriff Roby Bowe said about a warrant issued in 2009 by Flathead County.
According to Sheriff’s reports, Mottsman asked to see Lt. Roger Guches at the Sheriff’s office in Libby at 1:01 p.m. on Wednesday.
“He wanted to file a complaint about the mine (Montanore),” Bowe said.
For more than a week, deputies and dispatchers had been in contact with Flathead County officials concerning the warrant for Mottsman. By 1:07 p.m. the Sheriff’s office had received identification confirmation and advised the suspect was in custody.
“We ran the alias names with the warrant out of Flathead and they checked out,” Bowe said.
Throughout the U.S. Mottsman has reportedly used alias names “Dave Griffin,”“Harold P. Mattsman,”“Sam Alexander Rose” and “Sam Haley Rose.”
Mottsman was arrested at 1:49 p.m. by local sheriffs for a felony warrant issued in Flathead County by Federal Marshal Jake Smith.
“Mottsman is his real name, or at least the name we have for him now,” Flathead Sheriff Chuck Curry said.“He is in our jail.”
The warrant in Flathead County was issued in 2009 for allegedly forging checks. Before seeing the judge this afternoon, Mottsman’s bond is set at $20,000.
Curry confirmed Mottsman’s incarceration in Kalispell. When asked what steps will be taken next,
“He (Mottsman) will see the judge today and we will see what transpires over the next few weeks,” Curry said.
Currently the case is in the hands of Flathead officials. However, Lincoln County was a key factor in the Mottsman arrest.
“The dispatcher and deputies did a tremendous job with researching records,” Bowe said.“He is wanted in Virginia and New Hampshire too for forgery.”
The Western News has attempted to contact Mottsman’s wife Lynne Haley Rose for comment. However, no comment has been issued at this time. She is also not under investigation for any criminal involvement.
“Because he has multiple warrants …I’m guessing there will be more than one bond,” Bowe said.
“I don’t know if it would possible for him to pay his bond and be released from jail.”

Sam Haley Rose is the victim of a smear campaign bankrolled by Mines Management Inc. of Spokane, WA and perpetrated by pro-mine public officials and locals because Rose and his wife founded an organization that is outspoken in its opposition to the proposed Montanore Mine. Montanore Mine is an extremely environmentally destructive plan that would tunnel beneath protected Cabinet Mountains Wilderness and destroy thousands of acres of National Forest lands, home to over 200 species, many of them on the federal threatened and endangered list.

Rose has not been to trial and remains innocent until proven guilty. The above article contains several incorrect statements by both the sheriff Roby Bowe and the reporter who has not adequately researched the facts. The Roses approached the sheriff's office for assistance in resolving an incident in which Montanore Mine personnel damaged both of their vehicles. However, the sheriff's office failed to process any report whatsoever.

David F. Latham, editor of a small weekly giveaway publication in the Montana town of 2500, is spearheading a campaign to further defame Sam Haley Rose and his wife, who is not implicated in the arrest. Latham is cyber-stalking the couple, contacting Lynne Haley Rose's friends in an effort to assassinate her character, and attempting to call into question the websites Mrs. Rose has worked on.

Mrs. Rose is an accomplished poet and freelance writer, and David Latham's zeal to discredit her has progressed well beyond the bounds of journalistic propriety.

Verifiable information regarding Montanore Mine's legal and financial woes are available at montanoremine.com . Further details on corruption in Lincoln County and the Libby Montana region are available at crystalcox.com .

Lets be real clear here. The article is about a criminal who, even before forming an opposition group against the mine project in Libby montana, was committing forgery all around the county. Also lets be real clear- his name is NOT Sam Haley Rose. That was a name he was using to evade his criminal past.
His real name is Harry Paul Mottsman. If he is a "victim" of anything its stupidly. The first rule in forming opposition groups is not to be a criminal. And help me understand what you mean by - "The above article contains several incorrect statements by both the sheriff Roby Bowe and the reporter who has not adequately researched the facts." Thanks for keeping me hanging. You forgot to put in your response what they are. I'm sure that this was just a mistake.
I do agree with you that "Mrs. Rose is an accomplished poet and freelance writer'. It make you wonder how a seemingly intelligent woman got involved with him.
And I just love your statement - " David Latham's zeal to discredit her has progressed well beyond the bounds of journalistic propriety." You understand there is no "journalistic propriety". If that was true Watergate would have just been a break in.
And last - Pleas update you reference like to crystalcox.com . She is not around anymore and she has not paid her domain name provider to host her web site. Go ahead click on the link in your response. It forwards to GoDaddy
Best of luck in the future.

Why don't we be clear and just admit that you don't have the faintest idea of the facts, and neither do the rest of your "all of us in Libby" hate group.
1. An accusation is not a conviction.
2. The information that you are hawking as the "truth" is a bunch of hearsay like all of the "truth" rattling around the gossip mongering cesspool of Libby Montana.
3. None of you in Libby have even the most basic idea of how to form an opposition group, because anyone expressing opposition in Libby is tarred and feathered and run out of town on a rail.
4. Roby the Sheriff and his crew spent about 5 minutes doing investigative work.
5. You're living in the past, "all of us in Libby." Watergate happened before most of us were even born. And, btw, if you think Crystal Cox is no longer around, read a newspaper once in awhile. Crystal Cox is viral all over the internet.

The point? David Latham is going way beyond what's right. Stop him, all of you in Libby.

Lynn:

Lets address your concerns one at a time:

1. An accusation is not a conviction. I agree, but I can accuse anyone of anything at any time. You see Im not part of, or affiliated with ANY court. People who hide behind the believe that your innocent until proven guilty always forget the end of the sentence - IN A COURT OF LAW. As an individual not affiliated with a "court of law" I get the benefit of saying what I want.

2. The information that you are hawking as the "truth" is a bunch of hearsay like all of the "truth" rattling around the gossip mongering cesspool of Libby Montana. Truth is perception ...so far I have seen nothing posted by you that has any truth to it. All I have posted is what has been in the media all ready

3. None of you in Libby have even the most basic idea of how to form an opposition group, because anyone expressing opposition in Libby is tarred and feathered and run out of town on a rail. So in Libby we have a group of people moving in the same direction. Wright or wrong its moving. Good for us.

4. Roby the Sheriff and his crew spent about 5 minutes doing investigative work. So we have an efficient law enforcement agency in Libby and Lincoln County. I kind of surprised that it took 5 minutes to figure Harry Paul Mottsman was a wanted criminal. Heres where Harry failed as a criminal - If your going to use a alias all over the place make sure you have an "traceable internet back story". He did not - so when you gooled Sam, his internet back round (facebook, linked in, High school). did not come up. It was easy from there.

5. You're living in the past, "all of us in Libby." Watergate happened before most of us were even born. And, btw, if you think Crystal Cox is no longer around, read a newspaper once in awhile. Crystal Cox is viral all over the internet. Would this be your "Crystal Cox"?-

http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/business/2011/12/...

Do you really want to hang your argument with her? She cant even afford to pay her internet hosting cost any longer.

The point? David Latham is going way beyond what's right. Stop him, all of you in Libby. Really - David Latham is your biggest problem? A small town " weekly give-away coupon clipper" editor,(your description- not mine). You got bigger problems. Just ask Harry.

Libby’s Montanian Editor David F. Latham Cyber-Stalking Alternative One Co-Founder Lynne Haley Rose
December 10, 2011 – Libby Mont.-- David F. Latham, editor of Libby’s weekly give-away coupon clipper, is on a mission to discredit Lynne Haley Rose of Alternative One, a Lincoln County-based grassroots organization currently leading opposition to the proposed Montanore Mine project.
Latham, who produces a weekly shopper and is the author of a handful of pay-to-publish novels, has shadowed the environmental organization’s leaders from the outset. First, David Latham demanded a list of Alternative One’s membership, which the organization keeps strictly confidential. Next, David F. Latham made an attempt to garner the forces of Libby’s pro-Montanore Mine populace in “joining” Alternative One for the purpose of working against their efforts. Strike two.
Now David Latham is frantically scouring the internet for any information that could discredit her. Cyber-stalking Haley Rose via other websites for which she has written and emailing anyone with any connection to Haley Rose for the purpose of defaming her character are currently the tactics being employed by David F. Latham of Libby’s Montanian free publication.
According to Haley Rose,“I have offered to give David Latham an official interview on the condition that he ceases and desists his cyber-stalking, but he has not responded. Instead, David Latham continues in his fruitless quest to dig up dirt about me. I am a private citizen with rights to privacy and freedom of expression, and David Latham is infringing on those rights.”
David Latham’s incentive to denigrate the character of Lynne Haley Rose, a poet and professional freelance writer is a mystery. Perhaps, like many in the small town of Libby, Montana, he is under contract with Montanore Minerals Corporation, whose ability to achieve permits to open the mine have undergone serious setbacks due to the work of Alternative One.
Lynne Haley Rose wants Latham to immediate discontinue contacting her family and friends in his ongoing efforts to hurt her good reputation and good standing as co-founder of Alternative One. His actions have far exceeded any activities that might fall under the umbrella of journalistic research.

I copied and pasted this from the hrliteraryservices.com web site maintained by Lynne Haley Rose, co founder of a opposition web site to the Libby Mine project. I added my own comments in parentheses throughout out the article. Pleas feel free to add any of your comments.

David F. Latham, editor of Libby’s weekly give-away coupon clipper, is on a mission to discredit Lynne Haley Rose of Alternative One, a Lincoln County-based grassroots organization currently leading opposition to the proposed Montanore Mine project.
Latham, who produces a weekly shopper and is the author of a handful of pay-to-publish novels, has shadowed the environmental organization’s leaders from the outset.( I would consider this good reporting. Its an issue that is on the fore front in Libby Montana.) First, David Latham demanded a list of Alternative One’s membership, which the organization keeps strictly confidential.( why is is "strictly confidential"? II belong to several environmental groups and in no way is my membership " strictly confidential". I know this since I get email and snail mail asking for donations from several of them.
Now in the wake of the questionable arrest of Lynne Haley Rose’s co-founder (who?- this just looks like a substance error in your part. Harry Paul Mottsman, your "partner" was the one who was arrested. He was using the name Sam Haley Rose to cover his criminal past.David Latham is frantically scouring the internet for any information that could discredit her. Cyber-stalking Haley Rose via other websites for which she has written and emailing anyone with any connection to Haley Rose for the purpose of defaming her character are currently the tactics being employed by David F. Latham of Libby’s Montanian free publication.(sounds like a good reporter digging for facts to me, Like you - use the tools you have).
Next, David F. Latham made an attempt to garner the forces of Libby’s pro-Montanore Mine populace in “joining” Alternative One for the purpose of working against their efforts. Strike two.
According to Haley Rose,“I have offered to give David Latham an official interview on the condition that he ceases and desists his cyber-stalking, but he has not responded.( which Haley Rose are you referring to -Lynne- or the arrested one - so many names I cant remember his real one - I think it was Harry. This article was written by Lynne, she may have just forgot to add her first name in the beginning of the paragraph - hey it could happen. And help me understand why you wold put a condition of "ceases and desist his cyber-stalking" What do you have to hide - oh yea- criminal background, my bad) I would applaud him for not agreeing to that. Of course you and I know that never happened and was never offered by you )
Instead, David Latham continues in his fruitless quest to dig up dirt about me. I am a private citizen with rights to privacy and freedom of expression, and David Latham is infringing on those rights.”( you know you gave up your "private citizen" status when you published your writings on the internet. Regardless of what you post its open record now.)
David Latham’s incentive to denigrate the character of Lynne Haley Rose, a poet and professional freelance writer, is a mystery. Perhaps, like many in the small town of Libby, Montana, he is under contract with Montanore Minerals Corporation, whose ability to achieve permits to open the mine have undergone serious setbacks due to the work of Alternative One.(Perhaps he is - so. You have to accept opposition to your postings - pull up your big girl patness and deal with it. Did you really expect it to be a walk in the park. And really - "serious setback", have you not been reading up on the progress of the mine,)

Simply unbelievable. I saw their web site a few weeks ago. They are not big fans of Libby or the people who live in town. I cant imagine what she must be going through. Its got to be hard to realize that someone you trusted deceived you for so long. As a survivor of a dysfunctional relations ship I can assure you it gets better in time. Hang in there Lynne. You may not have the peopele of Libby on your side, but I will pray for you.

You are trying too hard, David, and it isn't working. Face it-your personal attacks are backfiring. Crill is still standing, and the mine opponents remain effective. You make them stronger and more credible. Give this one a rest. It's boring.
