Springdale Man And Two Teens Charged After 'Christmas Present' Pot Bust

From CDAPress.com - A Springdale man is facing felony marijuana trafficking charges after more than 3 pounds of pot wrapped up as Christmas presents was discovered in his car during a traffic stop east of Coeur d'Alene. Two of his teenage children were also arrested for concealing small amounts of pot.   

According to the Coeur d'Alene Press, it all went down on Dec. 22nd when 36-year-old Jason D. Palmer was returning from a trip to Montana to visit family. He was pulled over for erratic driving on Interstate 90. Kootenai Co. Sheriff's deputies said he was changing lanes repeatedly in a rented 2012 four-door Mazda wagon, and following too close behind other drivers.

After the vehicles pulled over, a deputy walked up to Palmer's driver's side window and found the smell of raw marijuana to be overpowering.

"When I made contact at the window, the odor increased its potency," the deputy wrote in his report.

The officer said Palmer told him he was a medical marijuana card holder and had a small amount of "medicine" in the vehicle. He told the officer the packages contained sweaters.

A K-9 unit was called to the scene, and the dog immediately went for the presents, which were unwrapped to find the drugs.

That's when Kootenai County sheriff's deputies found 3.3 pounds of the pungent drug plant packaged in Christmas presents.

Two of Palmer's four children, 12 and 14-year-old boys, who were in the vehicle with him when he was pulled over and the pot was discovered were also arrested because they had small amounts of marijuana in their possession as well, according to the Kootenai Co. Sheriff's Department.  

Palmer, who works at Advanced Indoor Garden Supply, in north Spokane, has been released after posting his $20,000 bond, and a preliminary hearing is scheduled for Jan. 13, court documents said.

Deputies also confiscated $800 cash Palmer had on him, which was seized for possible asset forfeiture.

In court last week, Palmer said he has no prior criminal history.
