Four face meth charges after West Boise bust

January 7, 2014 

Four Treasure Valley residents are charged with drug trafficking, and charges against a fifth suspect are pending after Ada County Sheriff’s detectives seized more than 200 grams of methamphetamine while serving a warrant at a West Boise home.

Devin R. Ponte, 27, Caley F. Proctor, 25, Joyce C. Richardson, 29, and Jeremy B. Courtade, 38, face felony charges. Proctor was released on bond but the others remained in the Ada County Jail Monday.

A sheriff’s news release said related charges are expected against 29-year-old Douglas R. Langley, who Boise Police arrested for a felony parole violation after a traffic stop.

Deputies arrested Ponte, Proctor, Courtade and Richardson on Dec. 31 while serving a search warrant at a home in the 3200 block of South Featherly Way in the neighborhood of Maple Grove and Victory roads. Detectives began their investigation in November after developing evidence drugs were being sold at the home.

Deputies, with the assistance of Meridian Police and the Boise Police BANDIT task force, found six rifles and two handguns inside the home. Ponte, Proctor, and Richardson were at the home when deputies arrived; Courtade was arrested after he arrived at the house the next morning.
