11-16-10 Felon Arrested for Meth & Spice Possession; daily incident report

Arrested: Idris Abdulrahim, 23, Boise

Charges: Possession of a Controlled Substance - meth (F), Possession of a legend drug - spice (m) ISC 37-2732(c)(3), Parole Violation (F)

    Boise Police were called to assist a Probation and Parole Officer conducting a search of felony probationer, Idris Abdulrahim. During a search of the suspect's residence Monday afternoon near Fairview & Allumbaugh, officers located a zip-lock baggie with white residue that field tested presumptive positive for methamphetamines in the suspect's bedroom. Officers found additional evidence the suspect was also in possession of spice, a misdemeanor. The suspect was taken into custody on the above charges and booked into the Ada County Jail.

    About Spice: Last month Governor Otter signed a State Board of Pharmacy rule adding the chemicals used in to make Spice - which also goes by K2, Genie, Ultra, Bombay Blue, Black Mamba and a host of other names - onto the state's controlled substance list making it illegal to sell or possess the product under Idaho State Code 37-2732. The upcoming Legislature will decide whether to make the ban permanent.

37-2732.  Prohibited acts A -- Penalties. (a) Except as authorized by this chapter, it is unlawful for any person to manufacture or deliver, or possess with intent to manufacture or deliver, a controlled substance.

(c)  It is unlawful for any person to possess a controlled substance unless the substance was obtained directly from, or pursuant to, a valid prescription or order of a practitioner while acting in the course of his professional practice, or except as otherwise authorized by this chapter.

(3)  Any person who violates this subsection and has in his possession a controlled substance which is a nonnarcotic drug classified in schedule I except lysergic acid diethylamide, or a controlled substance classified in schedules III, IV, V and VI is guilty of a misdemeanor and upon conviction thereof may be imprisoned for not more than one (1) year, or fined not more than one thousand dollars ($1,000), or both.
