Christopher M. Ybarguen and Danielle B. Fultz are being held in the Ada County Jail on felony drug delivery and possession charges after Boise police say they found 11 grams of meth and 150 prescription pills in their car late Thursday.
Police were looking for the 29-year-old Ybarguen to arrest him on a probation violation when they found him and the 26-year-old Fultz in a car as it pulled into the parking lot of a hotel in the 2600 block of West Fairview Avenue around 11 p.m. Thursday.
Police were talking to Ybarguen when a K-9 drug dog detected the presence of drugs in the car, according to reports.
Police searched the car and found 150 oxycodone and hydromorphone (commonly known as Dialaudid) pills the pair did not have a valid prescription for, 11 grams of methamphetamine, scales, syringes, packaging materials, and other undisclosed evidence that led to Ybarguen being charged with drug delivery, according to reports. Fultz is charged with possession of controlled substance.
The pair are set to make their initial court appearances later Friday.
The crime of delivery of a controlled substance (meth) is punishable by up to life in prison.
The crime of possession of a controlled substance (prescription drug) is punishable by up to seven years in prison, according to Idaho code.
Ada County Sheriffs deputies arrested three people Wednesday on similar drug charges.
Ky Calvin Rose and Deven Hamel are being held in the Ada County Jail on drug delivery charges after deputies say they sold undercover officers prescription medication and heroin earlier this summer.
Sanja Tucakovic, who was arrested with Rose, is also charged with delivery of a controlled substance. All three have preliminary hearings set for early August on the charges.
Deputies began their investigation in early May after getting a tip about illegal drug sales. Officials say Rose and Tucakovik sold small amounts of Dilaudid pills to undercover officers on two occasions earlier this summer.
Officials say the pair referred those undercover officers to Hamel, who sold them small amounts heroin twice this June.
Sheriffs deputies arrested all three Wednesday.
