After several months of investigating and receiving a warrant, Tuesday evening members of the Boise Police BANDIT (Boise Area Narcotics and Drug Interdiction Task Force) team conducted a search of a hotel room located on the 2500 block of South Vista Avenue.  When officers served the warrant they found one occupant of the room, identified as Davis Jr., to have an active parole violation warrant.  Officers placed Davis Jr. under arrest and found him to be in possession of over three grams of a crystal substance which tested presumptive positive for methamphetamine.  While searching the room officers also located approximately 12 grams of meth which evidence indicated belonged to the other occupant, identified as Fisher.  Officers also located other drug paraphernalia items, as well as a spray canister with a false top used to conceal some of the narcotics.  Officers booked Davis Jr. and Fisher into the Ada County Jail under the above charges.
