   Warrant Charges: Possession of a Controlled Substance (Meth)

The suspect was taken into custody on an outstanding felony warrant for Possession of a Controlled Substance yesterday.

The arrest warrant stems from a call to police asking for assistance in the eviction of a tenant at a hotel on the 900 block of North Milwaukee on May 4th of this year. On that date, officers found 1 gram of Meth and a small amount of marijuana in the apartment. Officers later determined the substance belonged to the suspect. That investigative information was forwarded to the Ada County Prosecuting Attorney's Office and resulted in the felony warrant.
