Two Boise Police K-9s assisted law enforcement in several overnight drug arrests.
Boise Police said they observed an adult male duck down to hide from law enforcement as a marked patrol car was cruising on the 4300 block of West State Street early today. A police officer said he noticed a strong smell of marijuana coming from the vehicle the suspect had ducked behind. A Boise Police K-9 alerted on the vehicle, indicating the likely presence of drugs. A search of the vehicle revealed marijuana, meth, pipes and other drug paraphernalia. In all, police arrested three suspects in or near the vehicle.
20-year-old Vincent Soto of Caldwell was charged with possession of meth, marijuana and drug paraphernalia and providing false identifying information.
20-year-old Leopoldo Hinojosa of Middleton was charged with frequenting a place where drugs are used or sold.
20-year-old David Ramirez of Notus was charged with frequenting a place where drugs are used or sold.
Also overnight, another Boise Police K-9 alerted police of the likely presence of drugs in a vehicle. A search of the vehicle on the 10000 block of West Fairview revealed a pipe and small plastic bags with meth residue on them.
40-year-old Michael Inglis and 30-year-old Tonya Schlichter, both of Nampa, were each charged with possession of meth and drug paraphernalia.
