Press Release-K9 Sniff Search Leads to Felony Drug Arrest

On Friday May 10, 2019 at approximately 9:14 AM, deputies from the Blaine County Sheriff’s Office arrested Karen M. Roscoe, age 64 of Hailey, Idaho for Possession of a Controlled Substance, I.C. 37-2732 (C)(1), a felony,

and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, I.C 37-2734(A), a misdemeanor.

The charges stem from an investigation by the Blaine County Narcotics Enforcement Team and a traffic stop conducted by Blaine County Sheriff’s deputies. The traffic stop occurred on May 7, 2019 at approximately 10:12 PM on State Highway 75 at mile post 105, south of Bellevue, Idaho. During the traffic stop, Blaine County Sheriff’s Office K9 “Kimber” was deployed and conducted a free air sniff of the exterior of Roscoe’s 2005 Subaru Outback.

K9 “Kimber” alerted on the vehicle, indicating the presence of the odor of drugs. During a subsequent search of the vehicle, deputies found approximately 10 grams of Methamphetamine, 2 syringes containing Methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.

The Blaine County Sheriff’s Office introduced its new K9 Program on May 3, 2019 and this is the first K9 deployment where illegal drugs were found since the teams were put into service.

Roscoe is scheduled for arraignment on May 13, 2019 at 1:30 PM
