In the Nov. 22 issue of the Mineral Independent, the article, “Sheriff Bauer Quits: Boone takes interim post” Mike Toth was reported to have applied for the acting sheriff’s position at a recent commissioners’ meeting.
In that story, it was listed that Toth had moved to Seattle and was a federal security guard. This was incomplete.
Toth moved to Seattle in 2004 to work as a Seattle police officer and worked his way up to detective. He was an officer in the bar district at night, which he said was a busy and educational assignment.
From Seattle he was recruited to work for the Renton, Washington, police department and worked as a detective on major felony property crime cases, as well as helped with personal crime scenes. From there he moved to Billings and became a private detective and worked part-time as a federal security guard at the federal courthouse.
There he joined the union and was hired as the union director for the United Government Security Guards of America union in Denver. In that position, he traveled around the country and worked with local unions with contract negotiations.
