Prowler call leads to arrest of two Boise men on drug charges

Two men were caught with methamphetamine after Boise police responded to a call of a man going through a parked car early Thursday in the 5600 block of West Marvin Lane.

Witnesses said it appeared the man was looking for something to steal while a second man stood nearby at about 1 a.m.

A search of Gary Oran Deaner, 35, revealed a small plastic bag containing a white substance that tested positive for methamphetamine.

A police drug dog was called to the scene and alerted on a backpack inside the vehicle where the second man, Ronald Eric Gabriel, 46, was believed to have been sitting. Officers found four small baggies containing marijuana and 30 pills containing four different prescription drugs. Police also found a glass pipe and a spoon containing drug residue and other drug paraphernalia.

Both men were taken to the Ada County Jail, where they remained Thursday afternoon.

A jail search of Gabriel revealed a folded piece of paper containing a white powder later identified as methamphetamine. He was charged with four counts of possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana, illicit conveyance of certain articles into a correctional facility and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Deaner was charged with a controlled substance violation.
