    Boise Police Officers observed, based on their training and experience, to be what appeared to be a hand to hand drug deal yesterday (February 4th) at approximately 8:00 p.m. in an alley on the 800 block of 27th street between the occupants of two vehicles. Officers followed the two vehicles as they entered a parking lot near 27th and Main and exited the vehicles to converse with a third driver. At this point, additional officers arrived and a traffic stop was conducted on all 3 vehicles. As officers contacted the suspects beside their vehicle's, William Redmond took off running down a nearby alley. During a brief foot chase, officers observed the suspect throw something on the ground. Redmond was taken into custody near 29th and Bannock. Officers located a wallet the suspect had thrown during the pursuit recovering 14 grams of Meth in two packages and one package containing 1 gram of marijuana. During the foot pursuit a second suspect, later identified as Christina Bolan, refused to obey officers commands and began to actively resist officers attempts to detain her by pulling away and attempting to leave. Officers placed her under arrest for obstructing at that time. A Boise Police K-9 alerted on all three vehicles, indicating the likely presence of drugs. A search of the vehicles revealed numerous items of drug paraphernalia including syringes, Meth pipes, documentation of sales and other items. Officers later found 3 grams of Meth that Henson had attempted to conceal in the back seat of a patrol car while being detained. The suspects were booked at the Ada County Jail on the above listed charges.
