  Arrested: John D. Odenwalt, 31, Mountain Home

   Charges:Possession of a Controlled substance (Meth)(F), Possession of Drug Paraphernalia (m), Driving Without Privileges (DWP)(m), Resisting and Obstructing (m)

    Boise Police on patrol last night (November 2nd) at approximately 6:30 p.m. saw and heard a vehicle travelling west on Kootenai Street with extremely loud amplified music in apparent violation of Boise City Noise Ordinance.  As officers began to make a U-turn to maneuver behind the vehicle in preparation to conduct a traffic stop, the driver of the suspect vehicle accelerated and turned north onto Owyhee st. Officers soon located the suspect vehicle abandoned on the 1100 block of S. Owyhee Street. Officers located the driver minutes later walking on foot near Edson and Cassia Streets. Officers noted that the suspect had discarded items of clothing including a shirt and hat. At first, Odelwalt refused to comply with instructions given by police. He was eventually taken into custody with no further incident. Officers later determined the suspect had a suspended drivers license. Officers recovered the discarded clothing from a nearby street. A Boise Police K-9 alerted on the abandoned vehicle indicating the likely presence of drugs. A search of the vehicle revealed a container with several plastic baggies containing approximately 13.5 grams total package weight of Meth. The suspect was booked at the Ada County Jail on the above listed charges.

Boise City Ordinance - Section 6-20-03 NOISE PROHIBITIONSIt shall be unlawful for any person to operate or permit the operation of any loud amplification device in such a manner that the sound therefrom: A. is plainly audible within any place of residence not the source of the sound, or, B. is plainly audible upon a public right-of-way or street at a distance of one hundred (100) feet or

    The suspect was taken into custody on an outstanding felony warrant for Exploitation of a Vulnerable Adult yesterday.

That investigative information was forwarded to the Ada County Prosecuting Attorney's Office and resulted in the felony warrant. No further information is available at this time.
