Man on probation with Felony gets banged with meth
On Tuesday, an officer from the Missoula Police Department, on leave, observed Jason Edgar Jr., 28, near the Economy West trailer court on West Broadway. The officer recognized Edgar from previous contacts and knew Edgar had an outstanding felony warrant.
A policeman placed Edgar under arrest and transported him to the detention center. A detention officer performed a routine inventory search of Edgar’s backpack. The detention officer found two small bags of methamphetamine, two glass pipes and metal pipe cleaning tools with burnt residue.
Edgar appeared in Missoula courthouse on Wednesday afternoon and Deputy County Attorney Carrie Garber made the following statement.
“He was arrested on the warrant and an inventory search at the prison revealed meth and accessories, which is why his other case is canceled in the first place,” Garber said. “There appears to be an issue with respect to compliance and ongoing chemical dependency issues. We ask for a separate deposit in addition to the one already in place. We’re asking for $ 15,000, Your Honor. “
The bond already in place by the district court was set at $ 10,000 and Judge Alex Beal decided not to impose an additional separate bond. Edgar was charged with one count of criminal possession of dangerous drugs.
