Crow Tribe in discussions over unused detention facility
The Crow Tribe of Montana might take over an unused detention facility located near the reservation.

The tribe doesn't plan on buying the facility in Hardin, Chairman Cedric Black Eagle said. But the tribe is talking with the Department of Justice and the Bureau of Indian Affairs about managing it as a drug-and-alcohol treatment center.

"That’s one of the options we’re exploring,” Black Eagle told the Associated Press.

The Hardin facility has been controversial in Montana. It cost $27 million but has been vacant since 2007.
