    A Boise Police patrol officer, working off information received from a citizen and his own investigation, learned that drug activity may be occurring in a motel room near the Boise Airport. The officer learned the occupant of the room, identified as Gregory K. Evans, was on felony probation with a valid 4th amendment waiver (subject to searches as a condition of probation). Officers contacted the suspect's parole agent and together, the officers searched the motel room. Inside the motel room, officers found both suspects, Evans and Ferrier, along with several pipes and a white crystal like substance in plain view. The white substance field tested positive for methamphetamine. Officers also found other evidence that may indicate drug delivery. The officer's report has been sent to the Ada County Prosecutors Officer to review for possible additional charges.

    Boise Police were called by the clerk of a convenience store in Boise's north end neighborhood after the clerk witnessed a man walk out of the store with a 24 pack of Pabst Blue Ribbon beer without paying. Witnesses were able to give officers a description of the vehicle the suspect drove off in. A short time later, a patrol officer spotted the suspect's car. The officer turned on his overhead lights, but the driver of the car continued on for several blocks, eventually stopping back in the parking lot of the convenience store. Officers spoke with the driver, who smelled strongly of alcohol. The suspect was arrested and taken to the Ada County Jail where he blew a .097 / .099. Officers ran a check on the suspect through records and found this was the suspect's third DUI offense in the last four years, with previous convictions in Nov., 2008 and March, 2007.
