Jerome man jailed in Ada County on meth charge

December 11, 2013 

A Jerome man accused of selling methamphetamine to undercover Ada County sheriff's detectives four times since October was arrested Wednesday afternoon.

Jose Lopez-Martinez, 31, was in the Ada County Jail on three felony counts of delivery of a controlled substance after the sheriff's office said he sold a pound of methamphetamine to an undercover officer in an East Boise parking lot for $8,000.

The first deal in October was for an ounce, officials said, with the subsequent deals involving larger amounts.

Lopez-Martinez was set to make his initial court appearance Thursday afternoon.

The crime of delivery of a controlled substance (methamphetamine) is punishable by up to life in prison.
