RE: Convicted Felon arrested for Possession of Methamphetamine, Marijuana, and Stolen Guns
Bonneville County Sheriff’s Deputies served a search warrant at an apartment and business in Idaho Falls yesterday as part of an ongoing investigation involving 28 year old Luis A. Torres. Deputies detained Mr. Torres at his place of employment on N. Boulevard where Marijuana and items of Drug Paraphernalia were found in his vehicle. In a search of Mr. Torres’ apartment in the 700 block of N. Saturn Deputies located Drug Paraphernalia, over 2 grams of suspected Methamphetamine, and over 16 grams of Marijuana along with 6 firearms. Deputies discovered at least 2 of the firearms had previously been reported stolen and are still looking into where the other firearms were obtained.
Mr. Torres is currently on parole with the Idaho Department of Corrections from a Felony Controlled Substance conviction in 2015 and is prohibited from possession illegal drugs and firearms. Deputies transported Torres to the Bonneville County Jail where he was booked on multiple Felony counts of Felon in Possession of a Weapon, Possession of Methamphetamine, and Possession of Stolen Property. Mr. Torres was also booked on Misdemeanor Possession of Marijuana and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.
