Charged: Possession of a Controlled Substance - Meth (F), Destruction of Evidence (F), Possession of drug paraphernalia (m), Possession of marijuana (m)

Arrested: Jessica L. Morris 34, Nampa
Charged: Warrant - Contempt of Court (m)

    A Boise Police officer on patrol late yesterday morning on the 1100 block of N. Curtis Road noticed a small grey car about to pull into traffic from a parking lot. The car was smoking heavily from exhaust. As the officer watched, the vehicle pulled back into the parking lot and drove around to the back of a building still smoking heavily. The officer followed the vehicle, stopped and asked to speak with the occupants, a male driver and female passenger, later identified as Miller and Morris.

    Both Miller and Morris told the officer they were on felony probation. The officer checked through Ada County dispatch and found Morris had an outstanding $3,500 warrant for contempt. While the officer spoke with the pair, he saw Miller throw down a dark colored object. Miller was immediately handcuffed. The officer then found a glass pipe with residue that tested positive for methamphetamine. Further investigation found Miller also in possession of a small amount of marijuana. Both were taken to the Ada County Jail and booked on the above charges.

Arrested: Ryder C. Orozco, 42, Boise
Charged: Driving Under the Influence (F)

    Officers were dispatched to the 6300 block of W. Usitck Road shortly after 2:00 this morning when a citizen reported a pickup truck blocking the roadway. Officers arrived to find the driver of the truck passed out behind the wheel and the truck blocking half the driving lane on eastbound Ustick and part of the sidewalk. Officers removed the keys from the ignition for safety and took several minutes trying to wake up the driver, later identified as Orozco. Officers could smell a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from Orozco and when he woke up, his speech was slurred. Officers could see Orozco had trouble maintaining his balance as he got out of his vehicle. 

    As officers attempted field sobriety tests, Orozco tried to run but officers quickly stopped him. He was arrested for DUI and taken to the Ada County jail where a blood draw was taken for further evidence testing. Orozco has two previous DUI convictions; on January, 2008 and March, 2009, making this a felony arrest.
