The banging on the back door of a Boise residence started about 1:40 a.m. on Nov. 27. Witnesses who called the Boise Police Department said the man doing the banging was also yelling the name of a female who did not live at that address. Oh, and he appeared to be very intoxicated.
When officers arrived at the home in the 5300 block of Cassia Street, they found a 26-year-old Boise man in the back yard. He was unable to tell police where he was or where he was going. But his search for female companionship had brought him to the wrong house, that much was apparent.
The subject of a cab ride home was raised. The suspect began emptying his pockets to see if he had the cash on hand for the fare. What popped out instead was a pill bottle with the label peeled off. Which, quite naturally, caught the officer's attention.
The bottle contained several pills. Turns out, they were ecstasy, according to a BPD press release. A subsequent search of the suspect also allegedly turned up a baggie containing a small amount of meth and a prescription medication but, alas, no prescription.
So instead of ending his Friday night bacchanal with a member of the fairer sex, the suspect crashed with the all-male orange-jumpsuit crowd at the county jail. He faces two felony charges of controlled-substance possession--one each for meth and ecstasy--along with a misdemeanor count for the prescriptionless prescription drug.
