    Felony Trafficking Marijuana Warrant Arrest

--------------------

  Warrant Arrested: Jose F. Sanchez, 25, Boise

   Warrant Charges:  Trafficking Marijuana (F)

     The suspect was taken into custody on an outstanding felony warrant for Trafficking Marijuana Yesterday (October 11th).

    The arrest warrant stems from an incident that took place on February 24th of 2008. On that date, Boise Police Narcotics Detectives, in cooperation with Garden City Police, and the BANDIT task force conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle on the 4800 block of Adams Street in Garden City. When the occupants of the vehicle attempted to enter a nearby home officers detained them and recovered 545 grams of marijuana from a cardboard box the driver was carrying. The suspect, who was the passenger in the vehicle, was not arrested at the time. After further investigation detectives determined the passenger had been involved in the distribution of marijuana. That investigative information was forwarded to the Ada County Prosecuting Attorney's Office and resulted in the felony warrant.
