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.
