Officers pulled over Daniel Smith, 32, of Boise for failing to stop at a stop sign Wednesday morning.

Police brought in a K9 unit and found more meth and drug paraphernalia in the vehicle, according to police.
Smith was taken to Ada County Jail and charged with one felony count of controlled substance violation and one count of resisting or obstructing officers. Edwards was charged with one felony count controlled substance violation and one count of drug possession.
