BOISE, ID—Two Kuna men are in custody for trying to sell a pound of methamphetamine to detectives Wednesday.

Detectives arrested Jeffrey Davis, 44, of Kuna at a parking lot in the Maple Grove/Overland roads neighborhood just before 6 p.m. on August 17, 2016.

Undercover detectives arranged to meet with Davis in the parking lot to buy a pound of meth. He was arrested shortly after showing up. Detectives found 589 grams of the meth inside Davis’ car, along with a loaded semi-automatic pistol and $1,200 in cash.

Detectives arrested Nathan Gamble, 39, of Kuna several hours later in a parking lot near the Emerald Street/Cole Road intersection — at a place where he was supposed to meet Davis to pick up the money from the earlier sale.

Detectives found an additional 48 grams of meth and $1,200 inside Gamble’s car.

Both Davis and Gamble were arrested and taken to the Ada County Jail. They were charged with felony drug trafficking which could face up to 15 years in prison.
