58-Year-Old Kamiah Man Arrested After Traffic Stop Leads to Deputy Finding Half an Ounce of Meth

On July 30, 2022, around 7:45 PM, while on routine patrol, an Idaho County deputy stopped a vehicle for a traffic violation on Woodland Road.

During the traffic stop, the driver got out of the vehicle and walked toward the riverbank, and attempted to dispose of something by throwing it toward the river. It bounced off a tree and did not go in the water.

The item, later identified as a Tupperware-type container, contained half an ounce of methamphetamine.

Brian Gilgert, age 58, of Kamiah, was arrested for possession of methamphetamine, attempted destruction of evidence, driver in possession of an open container of alcohol, resisting and obstructing an officer, and possession of paraphernalia.
