A white 2012 Chevrolet Malibu with four occupants, including a female driver, a male passenger, and two minor children was stopped on Highway 75 near Woodside Blvd. in Bellevue, Idaho. Upon investigation, the front seat passenger, Abel Dominguez Rivera, age 33 of Hailey, Idaho, was arrested and charged with one felony count of Trafficking Methamphetamine, I.C. 27-3732B(4)(A), one felony count of Fugitive to Idaho, 19-4513, and one misdemeanor count of Possession of Paraphernalia, IC. 37-2734A.
