Two 17-year-old boys have been arrested in connection with two drug related armed robberies.
Last Saturday at Greenough Park a 17-year-old was reportedly beaten and robbed by two young men near Toole Park on Wednesday night.
Another man was robbed at gunpoint in what investigators suspect may be a drug deal gone bad. That man wasn't injured.
Police said both suspects are from Missoula.
"They were informed of the crimes being investigated," said Det. Sgt. Travis Welsh, "and they were asked about their involvement and they made admissions that connect them to both instances."
Welsh said police haven't recovered any weapons from the robberies.
The case is now in youth court, but Welsh said it's possible that it could be moved to adult court.
