James M. Cyr is being held in the Ada County Jail on a felony count of trafficking a controlled substance after Boise police say they found him carrying 49 grams of meth in his pants pocket just before midnight Wednesday.
In an unrelated case, Boise police arrested Craig J. Curtis on drug delivery and manufacturing charges after finding 19 grams of psilocybin mushrooms, a small amount of mushroom growing equipment, and two bags with marijuana inside his home in the 11000 block of West Charitan Street, which is in the Fairview Avenue/Five Mile Road neighborhood, around 8:30 p.m. Wednesday.
The amount of marijuana was not listed in police reports but officers say they developed undisclosed evidence that Curtis was selling it, which led to the drug delivery charge. Police found the drugs after being asked to help Idaho Probation and Parole agents search Curtis home. Curtis was then arrested and booked into the jail.
In the other case, police were sent to a bank in the 400 block of North Orchard Street around 11:30 p.m. after someone called 911 and told officers a man who asked for help with the ATM threatened to harm him with a weapon. The caller told police the man, later identified as Cyr, didnt try to rob him but seemed to get angry with him as they talked. The caller also said Cyr appeared to be intoxicated.
Police arrived moments later, found Cyr standing by the ATM, and then figured out he was on parole. They searched him and found he had five baggies with meth in them (for a total package weight of 49 grams) and a syringe in a pants pocket, according to reports. It was during that investigation police say they developed evidence the meth was for sale, which is why Cyr is charged with trafficking.
Police did not find any weapons on Cyr.
Both Cyr and Curtis will make their initial court appearances Thursday afternoon.
