HELENA - Coty Bass of Helena was arrested just prior to his sentencing on Thursday on a warrant.
Bass appeared in Judge Sherlock's court on what was supposed to be his sentencing for burglary and theft charges.
However, a warrant for his arrest took him out of court.
The warrant is based on filings by his probation officer claiming he failed at least two drug tests.
Bass was out on bail prior to his sentencing date.
He is originally accused of stealing electronics equipment from Kessler school and cash from a local attorney's office he had been cleaning.
Bass is in jail on a no-bond warrant.
