Burned-out headlight leads deputies to mushrooms, pound of pot, handgun, sword and more
BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) —
A burned-out headlight turned into a drug trafficking arrest Friday night.
The Ada County Sheriff's Office says deputies pulled Lee Thomas Smith, 27, of Utah, over around 8 p.m. Friday on Eagle Road near the east Taconic Drive intersection. Once deputies began talking to Smith, they smelled marijuana in the car and called in a K-9 deputy to sniff around the car.
The dog then indicated there were drugs in the car. After searching, the sheriff's office says more than a pound of marijuana was found in the car, but they also found a plastic bag of psilocybin mushrooms (known as shrooms), hash oil, unidentified pills, digital scales and a pipe, a loaded handgun, a sword, and more than $2,400 in cash.
Smith was arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver. Deputies say other charges were filed as well.
Smith has a court appearance on Monday.
