Idaho State Patrol

IDAHO FALLS - On Friday morning, August 27, 2021, just outside Idaho Falls, an Idaho State Trooper stopped a Lincoln SUV traveling north on Interstate 15 for an equipment violation. During the stop, evidence was obtained by the trooper that indicated the possible presence of illegal drugs. In a search of the vehicle, more than 20-pounds of a white crystal-like substance was found.

The substance tested presumptive positive as methamphetamine. Pipes used to smoke marijuana and methamphetamine were also found. 20-pounds of methamphetamine is enough to cause irreparable harm to hundreds of people, families, and communities.

The driver of the vehicle, identified as 37-year-old Pedro Reyes Carreno, of Los Angeles, CA, was arrested and booked into the Bonneville County Jail on charges of Drug Trafficking - Methamphetamine (F), and Possession of drug paraphernalia (m).

Carreno was also cited for driving without a license, without insurance, and without valid registration.

The trooper making the arrest is a member of the Idaho State Police criminal interdiction team, a group of troopers specially trained and dedicated to intercepting dangerous drugs and preventing harm to Idaho communities.
