In separate cases, Boise police arrest 2 for meth possession

April 22, 2013 

Boise police made two separate arrests for felony possession of methamphetamine over the weekend, according to a press release.

Richard L. Mcdowell, 38 and Sandra L. Biser, 33, both of Boise, were each taken to the Ada County Jail for possession of a controlled substance and various misdemeanors.

Mcdowell was arrested shortly after 11:30 p.m. Friday after officers noticed a vehicle fail to signal a lane change near Boise Avenue and Beacon Street. According to police, Mcdowell's license was suspended at the time.

As officers spoke with Mcdowell, a police canine alerted on the vehicle, prompting a search for drugs. According to police, that search produced multiple pipes and a baggie with roughly 1 gram of meth.

At around 7 p.m. Sunday, police say a vehicle that Biser was a passenger in failed to stop for a stop sign at Latah and Nez Perce streets. Again, a police canine alerted officers to the possible presence of drugs. According to police, a bag belonging to Biser contained several prescription pills with no documented prescription, a small amount of meth and various paraphernalia, including a glass pipe with marijuana residue.
