Boise police arrest two on meth possession charges

March 19, 2014 

Two Boise men were taken into custody Tuesday in separate incidents.

A police officer patrolling on North Patricia Lane near West Ruth Street observed a car without a front license plate at 11:20 p.m. The driver pulled over and he and a passenger exited the car and began walking as the officer pulled his car around to stop the vehicle.

The officer ordered the man and woman to get back in the car. Officers later found passenger Melanie J. Baugh, 37, in possession of 1.5 grams of methamphetamine and a meth pipe.

She was charged with possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia.

The driver, who was not named, was cited for no proof of insurance.

In the second case, parole and probation officers conducted a visit at the home of parolee Patrick S. Oar. The officers found one gram of meth and a light bulb converted into a pipe used for smoking meth.

Oar, 56, was also charged with possession of methamphetamine and paraphernalia.
