Call it a coincidence? At about 5:00 last night, Idaho State Police pulled over a 1997 Honda Accord for (another) unspecified “traffic violation.” After searching the car, officers found two and half pounds of marijuana and about $5,000 in cash. While it isn’t as big as the Power County megabust that happened a mere 18 hours later, it’s another decently big drug bust to happen on a supposedly routine traffic stop.
ISP officers arrested three people, Amber Duncan, Alan Schoepke and Abraham Nyhart, all in their mid-20s, for possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. The investigation is, of course, ongoing, meaning details are scarce for the time being.
