Jeremiah Lee Carraway is being held in the Ada County Jail on DUI and felony possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver charges after Idaho State Police say they found more than two ounces of marijuana in his car during a traffic stop early Tuesday morning.
Police say the 27-year-old Carraway appeared intoxicated and failed drug recognition tests (DRE) in the field, which is why he is charged with DUI for marijuana use, according to reports. Police took a blood test from Carraway for later evidence testing.
An ISP officer pulled over Carraways car for speeding on Interstate 84 near the Ten Mile Road interchange just before 1 a.m. Tuesday.
It was during the DUI investigation that officers called for a K-9 police dog, which detected the presence of drugs. Police say they found a total of 2 1/2 ounces of marijuana inside the car packaged for sale. Police also developed some undisclosed evidence that the pot was for sale before charging Carraway with possession with intent to deliver.
Carraway will make his initial court appearance Tuesday afternoon.
The crime of possession of marijuana with intent to deliver is punishable by up to five years in prison.
Carraway already has a jury trial scheduled to begin in January after being arrested on a misdemeanor DUI on Oct. 5, and lengthy record of juvenile offenses, including petit theft, battery, and burglary, according to Idaho court records.
