Multiple persons were arrested on felony drug charges in two unrelated incidents last week, according to the Idaho County Sheriff’s Office (ICSO). Court hearings are pending.
Bradford R. Duncan, 63, of Stites, is charged with possession of methamphetamine and possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver, both felonies, and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia. He is also being charged with possession/introduction of certain articles into a correctional facility, a felony, after detention deputies allegedly discovered him in possession of methamphetamine while being booked into the Idaho County Jail.
Sheila R. Wakeman, 59, of Stites, is charged with possession of methamphetamine and possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver, both felonies; and possession of less than three ounces of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia, both misdemeanors.
Duncan and Wakeman are being held at the Idaho County Jail on $10,000 bond each.
In an unrelated case, additional arrests were made.
Kasha C. Farris, 26, of Kamiah, was arrested on felony possession of methamphetamine, and possession of paraphernalia and driving while suspended, both misdemeanors.
Nicholas C. Enriquez, 31, of Lewiston, was arrested on felony possession of methamphetamine, and possession of paraphernalia and fail to appear on a Lewis County DUI warrant, both misdemeanors.
Both are being held in the Idaho County Jail and bond has not yet been set.
Charges against Duncan and Wakeman followed a search warrant conducted last Friday, Dec. 9, at 307 North Main Street in Stites.
According to ICSO, while investigating a theft, deputies Sam AuGello and Craig Hoodman contacted Duncan, Wakeman and Steven Lupoli, 58, of Kooskia. While in the residence, the deputies observed suspected narcotics and drug paraphernalia. The occupants were removed from the residence, and after a search warrant was granted and served, deputies seized at the residence alleged methamphetamine, packaged for sale, as well as marijuana and drug paraphernalia.
Lupoli was cited for misdemeanor frequenting a place of drug use.
The following day, Saturday, Dec. 10, ICSO Deputy Craig Hoodman observed a vehicle driving slowly and delaying several other vehicles on U.S. Highway 12 near milepost 71, three miles east of Kooskia.
Deputy Hoodman stopped the vehicle and, upon identification of the occupants, determined Farris’ driver’s license was suspended and Enriquez had a Lewis County arrest warrant. Both Farris and Enriquez were taken into custody. While completing the post arrest vehicle inventory, methamphetamine and paraphernalia were allegedly discovered in the vehicle.
