A Nampa woman and a Garden Valley man are in the Ada County Jail each facing a variety of charges, after a traffic stop resulted in one suspect running from police.

Boise Police officers performed a traffic stop on a car near West Palouse Street and South Taggart Street around 11 p.m. on Sunday.

Officers say the car’s right signal was on, but the driver crossed three lanes of traffic and turned left.  

The driver, later identified as Robert Marrs, 31, of Garden Valley, said he didn’t have any ID and, according to police, falsely identified himself.  

Officers found Marrs had an outstanding warrant for his arrest for several charges. 

A passenger in the vehicle, Allison Mae Staggie, 18, of Nampa, was also found to have an outstanding warrant for escape.

Staggie got out of the vehicle and reportedly ran from police. She was stopped by an officer about one block away.

A narcotic detection dog alerted to illegal drugs in the vehicle -- and a later search revealed drug paraphernalia and a substance in Staggie’s purse that tested presumptive for methamphetamine, according to officers.

Marrs and Staggie were taken to the Ada County Jail.

Staggie is facing charges of escape by a juvenile from custody and possession of a controlled substance. Both are felonies. She also faces two misdemeanors of possession of drug paraphernalia and resisting or obstructing officers.

Marrs faces charges of grand theft and grand theft by acquiring lost property. Both are  felonies. He was also charged with misdemeanors of fraudulent use of a financial transaction card and providing false information to an officer.
