An upcoming U.S. Supreme Court case involving the Crow Nation could clarify the authority of tribal police officers to investigate crimes committed by non-Indians within reservation boundaries, tribal law experts say.

This story was originally published by the Montana Free Press.

United States v. Cooley centers on the detainment of a non-Indian and evidence - including guns and about 260 grams of methamphetamine - gathered by a tribal police officer from a truck stopped on the shoulder of a U.S. highway traversing the Crow reservation in south-central Montana.
