Four people have been arrested -– and one is still at large –- in a multi-law enforcement agency drug trafficking investigation.

On Wednesday morning, officers and agents from the Nampa Police Department, the Drug Enforcement Administration, Idaho State Probation and Parole, and the Boise Police Department served drug-related search warrants at two Nampa homes -– one in the 400 block of 21st Avenue South; the other, in 600 block of Railroad Court.

Investigators said the search warrants were part of ongoing narcotics investigations.

Officers say they seized methamphetamine and heroin during the searches. “They also recovered a 2014 Hyundai Accent which was stolen four days earlier in Nampa. (The car) was recovered at the Railroad Court residence,” said Nampa Police Sgt. Tim Riha.

“It is not uncommon for stolen property to be found during the process of serving drug-related search warrants,” Nampa Police Lt. Eric Skoglund added.

Officers arrested Shane Martin, 41, of Nampa, on three counts of trafficking heroin; Shannon Martin, 37, of Nampa on two counts of trafficking heroin; Kamilla Weidman, 25, also of Nampa, on grand theft by possession and frequenting a drug house; and Miguel Godina, 27, of Caldwell, for frequenting a drug house and possession of drug paraphernalia.

All were booked into the Canyon County Jail.

Greg Pokorney Sr., 69, of Nampa, was issued a summons on a charge of frequenting a drug house.

Police are still looking for Greg Pokorney, Jr., 45, of Nampa. “He has warrants for his arrest on two counts of trafficking heroin,” said Riha.

Anyone with information about Pokorney’s whereabouts is urged to contact the Nampa Police Department at 465-2257 or, if you wish to remain anonymous, you can call Crime Stoppers at 343-COPS (343-2677).
