A Boise man is in the Canyon County Jail on felony charges after Nampa police arrested him on outstanding warrants and fresh charges of resisting an officer and drug trafficking.
A Nampa detective recognized Bradley Koch, 28, at a business near Karcher and Cassia roads and knew Koch had outstanding felony warrants, police said in a news release late Thursday. When the officer tried to arrest Koch, the suspect fled and was captured after a brief foot chase, police said. The incident happened Tuesday, police said.
A Nampa police drug dog alerted to the presence of drugs in the vehicle Koch had arrived in, and a police search located more than two ounces of methamphetamine, nearly four grams of cocaine, a small amount of marijuana and several types of prescription pills police said. Officers also located a Glock pistol that was later determined to have been stolen out of Montana.
Koch was arrested on a Gem County felony warrant and a probation violation warrant, and also faces new felony charges of trafficking in methamphetamine, drug possession and unlawful possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. He also is charged with misdemeanor resisting arrest and possession of drug paraphernalia. Further charges may be filed as the investigation continues, police said.

Koch is scheduled for an in-custody arraignment Sept. 2.
