A man's call to dispatch lands him in jail on Meth Trafficking; weekend felony arrests

09-07-10 A man's call to dispatch lands him in jail on Meth Trafficking; weekend felony arrests

Arrested: Thomas M. Massey, 50, Nampa
Arrested: Stephan James Pfeiffer-Weller, 21, Boise
Charge: Trafficking Meth (F)

Boise Police, with assistance from Garden City Police, responded to Fairview Ave motel after a man had called police dispatch reporting someone was out to get him. The man, later identified as Massey, also told police dispatchers he had a gun and would shoot anyone who pulled a gun on him. The call came in Saturday morning, Sept. 4th at about 8:00 a.m.
Officers arrived at the motel and found Massey sitting in a vehicle. Due to his statements to dispatchers indicating he may have a weapon, officers had Massey step out of the vehicle for questioning. During questioning, the suspect Massey asked an officer to get him a cigarette from a box he left inside his vehicle. The officer found the cigarette box, but when he opened the box, the officer found two plastic baggies with a white crystal-like substance that later tested positive for methamphetamine.
The suspect Massey also told officers he had been staying in the motel but had been locked out of his room. Again, because of the statements Massey had made earlier to dispatchers, officers wanted to check inside the room to make sure anyone inside was safe. In the room, officers found the suspect Pfeiffer-Weller and additional baggies containing a white crystal-like substance.
Officers believe both Massey and Pfeiffer-Weller may have been under the influence during the incident. After further investigation, officers found more than 30 grams of meth in addition to other evidence leading to the trafficking charges for both suspects. Both Massey and Pfeiffer-Weller were booked into the Ada County Jail.

Boise Police were called to a fight in progress at a home on the 1800 blk of N. Cole Rd. Sunday afternoon, Sept. 5th at about 4;20 p.m. When officers arrived, they found the victim, an adult male unconscious with what appeared to be facial injuries. Paramedics transported the victim to a nearby hospital.
Witnesses told officers the victim and the suspect were acquainted and had begun to argue initially over a noise complaint. The argument turned violent with the suspect sitting on and beating the victim. The suspect had driven off before officers arrived. However, officers soon located his vehicle and the suspect arrested on the above charge.

The officers saw one man, later identified as Christopher W. Blakeslee, 29 of Boise, hit another man in the face. That man, Tindal, then pushed Blakeslee and a female to the ground. As the officers went to break it up, the suspect Tindal physically resisted by trying to hold onto a wall, then grabbed an officer's leg trying to pull the officer to the ground. During the struggle, an officer deployed his Taser to try and get the suspect under control. Blakeslee was arrested for disturbing the peace, a misdemeanor. Tindal was arrested on the above charges.
