On August 3, 2022, around 10:45 PM, an Idaho County deputy was on routine patrol, when he observed a vehicle traveling on Johnston Cutoff Road with a non-working taillight. The vehicle then “bottomed out” and sparks were flying into the tall grass.
The deputy stopped the vehicle for the violations. A routine check showed the driver had a warrant for his arrest. During the search incident to arrest, methamphetamine was located.
