Dallas T. Thompson and Crystal M. Moss are being held in the Ada County Jail on felony charges of possession of controlled substance with intent to deliver after Boise police say they found 19 grams of methamphetamine in their car during a traffic stop Tuesday night.
Police reports say the 31-year-old Thompson, who is from Middleton, is a documented gang member but not which gang he belongs to.
A Boise patrol officer pulled over Thompsons car over after watching it go through a stop sign at the Malad/Owyhee streets intersection in the Vista Avenue neighborhood around 10 p.m. Tuesday. Police say they found a small amount of marijuana in Thompsons pocket when they searched him after he got out of the car. Thats when officers called for a K-9 dog, who detected the presence of drugs in the car, according to reports.
Police say they found 19.3 grams of meth inside the car, along with drug paraphernalia and other undisclosed evidence that both Thompson and the 35-year-old Moss were selling drugs, according to police reports.
Both were arrested and booked into the jail.
Thompson and Moss will make their initial court appearances Wednesday afternoon.
The crime of possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver (meth) is punishable by up to life in prison.
Idaho Court records show Thompson has several active court cases, including charges of resisting arrest, driving without a valid license, fighting and a probation violation filed in connection with a 2010 DUI arrest in Ada County.
