Nampa police seize large quantity of drugs after serving warrant on Meridian man

About 2 pounds of heroin and 10 pounds of methamphetamine with a combined value of more than $180,000 were seized Thursday after police served a parole violation warrant on a Meridian man, Nampa police reported Friday evening.

Trevor Bishoff was located in the 4400 block of Nampa's Garrity Boulevard as part of surveillance efforts attempting to locate the 39-year-old, who was listed on the Treasure Valley's "most wanted" list, police said. Parole officers and Meridian police helped locate the suspect, Nampa police said.

Bishoff was taken into custody without incident and found to be in possession of a large quantity of narcotics, police said. Officers then obtained a search warrant for a home in the 1200 block of Rutledge in Meridian, where another large quantity of drugs was recovered, police said.

Bishoff was booked into the Canyon County jail on the parole violation charge but also faces charges of trafficking methamphetamine and trafficking heroin, police said.

According to court records, in 2010 Bishoff was sentenced to at least four years in prison on an Ada County charge of meth trafficking. In 2011 he was approved for early release, according to court records.
