Officers noted that the vehicle did not move for some time, the headlights were still on and the vehicle was running. Officers approached the vehicle and observed an adult male slumped over in the driver's seat. As officers made contact with the driver, later identified as Leif Newby, he repeatedly placed his hands in his pockets after being asked not to. Officers recovered a meth pipe and a clear plastic baggie containing a small amount of Meth from the suspect's person. The suspect was booked at the Ada County Jail on the above listed charges.

That investigative information was forwarded to the Ada County Prosecuting Attorney's Office and resulted in the felony warrant.
