Two Nampa residents were arrested now face several drug charges Saturday afternoon, according to a Nampa Police Department press release.

A Nampa detective recognized Esau Deloya, 29, of Nampa in the area of the 100 block of North Stanford Street. Deloya, who had a felony warrant out for his arrest, was outside a residence with Emily Richardson, 20, of Nampa, who also had two warrants out for her arrest, according to NPD.

The detective called more officers around 3:30 p.m. to the scene and they took Deloya into custody and searched him and Richardson. Police say Deloya had a backpack with him at the time of the arrest that had a half pound of methamphetamine, 25 grams of heroin, 28 grams of cocaine and a credit and identification card reportedly stolen from a Meridian man. NPD said the street value of the drugs was around $15,000.

NPD also searched Richardson’s makeup bag, which reportedly contained presumed methamphetamine and marijuana.

Deloya was charged with three counts of drug trafficking, possession of drug paraphernalia on top of his warrant. Richardson was charged with two counts of drug possession, possession of drug paraphernalia on top of her two warrants.
