POCATELLO — Pocatello police recently arrested three people on drug-related charges in separate incidents.
The most recent occurred on Tuesday and involved a 38-year-old Pocatello man.
That incident began when Daniel S. Carrillo allegedly tried to steal a treat from a convenience store on North Arthur, according to police. The clerk and others there tried to stop him, leading to a disturbance.
When officers responded to the scene, Carrillo tried to flee, police said. He also allegedly resisted them, causing minor injuries to one officer.
During the incident, police said they found a glass pipe with what appeared to be methamphetamine residue inside of it in Carrillo’s possession.
Carrillo has since been charged with a felony for possession of a controlled substance and misdemeanors for resisting or obstructing officers and petit theft, according to Bannock County Magistrate Court records.
On Saturday, police arrested a 42-year-old McCammon man.
They say Cory L. Ridley was taken into custody in connection to a trespassing incident. At that time, police say they found a pipe and a small amount of methamphetamine in his possession.
Ridley has since been charged with a felony for possession of a controlled substance, according to court records.
Police also arrested a 29-year-old Pocatello woman on Friday.
That incident began when officers responded to a report of a male trying to pull a female, Heather L. Heard, out of a vehicle, police said.
Heard allegedly had a meth pipe, which contained residue, under her car seat. She tried to break it while talking to officers, police said.
Heard has since been charged with a felony for possession of a controlled substance, according to court records.
