PRESS RELEASE

RE:  Wanted man arrested after disturbance

     On December 24th, 2019, at approximately 2:20pm, Bonneville County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a disturbance at a residence in the 3200 S. block of 65th W. where a male and female were reported to have forced their way into a residence.  Prior to Deputies arrival, it was reported a male by the name of “Dusty” and female left the residence on foot in separate directions. 

     As a Deputy arrived in the area he located a male he recognized as 37 year old Dustin D. Strange of Idaho Falls walking on 33rd S., east of where the disturbance was called in.  At first Mr. Strange gave a fake name to the Deputy, who could also smell the strong odor of marijuana coming from his person.  After being detained, Mr. Strange admitted his true identity as well as being in possession of drug paraphernalia in his backpack.  In a search of the backpack, the Deputy located two drug pipes, approximately .5 grams of Methamphetamine, and just over 27 grams of Marijuana.  During this time the Deputy discovered Strange had an active Felony Parole Violation warrant as well.

     Deputies determined Mr. Strange was present at the disturbance they were originally called to but not involved in criminal activity there.  The female party involved was not located and Deputies are continuing the investigation into that incident.  Mr. Strange was taken into custody and transported to the Bonneville County Jail where he was booked on the Felony Parole Violation Warrant along with new charges of  Felony Possession of Methamphetamine and Misdemeanor Possession of Marijuana and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.
