A man was charged with drug possession in Idaho Falls and a number of other offenses, including driving under the influence,  following his arrest on Sunday, April 11. The arrest was made by Bonneville County Sheriff’s deputies. Authorities identified the suspect as Cody W. Seymore, 32, of Rexburg.

Based on these confirmations, the deputy asked Seymore if he was in possession of meth at the time. Seymore answered affirmatively to this as well, admitting that he had one ounce of meth in the vehicle.

A search of the vehicle led the deputies to recover around 29 grams of meth as well as drug paraphernalia. Cash amounting to $1700 was also recovered from the vehicle. Based on the evidence and his own admission, Seymore was taken into custody by the deputies.

He was then transported to the Bonneville County Jail and charged with several offenses. These include driving under the influence second offense, misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia, misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance, and felony possession of meth.
