PRESS RELEASE

RE: Traffic Stop leads to Drug Arrest

     An Idaho Falls man was booked into the Bonneville County Jail last Saturday (May 1st, 2021) after being found in possession of Illegal Drugs and Drug Paraphernalia.  At around 10:40am a Bonneville County Sheriff’s Deputy stopped a vehicle for traffic violations near the 1700 N. block of Lindsay Blvd. and identified the driver as 39 year old Kim Alan Spotted Bear of Idaho Falls.  At the time, Spotted Bear was found to be driving on a Suspected Drivers License and could not produce Registration or Insurance to the vehicle. 

     During this time, Deputy and his K-9 partner arrived, finding indications from a free air search that the odor of Illegal Drugs was coming from the vehicle.  Deputies searched the vehicle locating Drug Paraphernalia, a small amount of Marijuana and Methamphetamine, and over 6 grams of suspected Psilocybin Mushrooms. 

     Spotted Bear was placed under arrest and transported to the Bonneville County Jail where he was booked for Felony Possession of Methamphetamine, and Misdemeanors for Possession of Psilocybin Mushrooms, Possession of Marijuana, and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.
