Updated: 3:30 pm

Prosecutors have charged twenty-year old Jacob Dziewic with one count of Felony Possession of a Firearm, three counts of Felonious Restraint, and one count of Aggravated Assault.

According to investigators, one of the hostages told them that herself, her boyfriend and three other people were visiting Dziewic at the hotel, the night before.

Dziewic and another person left for awhile and came back with a suitcase full of drugs and also starting showing off their guns.

The two later refused to allow anyone to leave and police arrived on scene a short time later.

Prosecutors say Dziewic was on probation at the time, on an unrelated charge.

He is being held on two-hundred thousand dollars bond awaiting trial.

 

One person is dead in connection to the hostage situation at a west-side Casper hotel.
