Deputies receive bag of methamphetamine, would like to find its owner

June 24, 2014 

Two people who saw this bag fall off of a passing motorcycle Friday turned it into Ada County deputies, who determined it was meth. Now, the sheriff's office is trying to figure out who owned it.


Tipped off by two people who saw a bag of meth fall off of a passing motorcycle, the Ada County Sheriff's Office took to Facebook Tuesday to search for the owner.

"If you were driving a motorcycle on Amity Road on Friday morning and mistakenly lost almost three ounces of methamphetamine, we found it — and we’d like to meet you," the Facebook post begins.

According to the sheriff's office, the motorcyclist was going about 80 mph on Amity between Eagle and Locust Grove roads at around 9 a.m. Friday when a black plastic pouch fell off the back of the motorcycle.

Two people in a nearby vehicle saw the pouch fall, turned around and retrieved it. Inside was a bag of white powder that sheriff's deputies later confirmed was meth.

The sheriff's office has very little identifying information for the motorcyclist, but says the motorcycle was described as a sport bike.

Anyone with information is asked to call Ada County Dispatch, 377-6790.
