Missoula Jail Staff Find Meth Hidden Under Man’s Genitals
At about 2:30am on Saturday, a Missoula Police Officer was driving through the Winco parking lot and recognized a gold 2004 Toyota Camry belonging to 30-year-old Jacob Notar. The officer knew Notar had a felony warrant out for his arrest. Police Public Information Officer Lydia Arnold explains.
“Officers observed Jacob in the area of 2510 South Reserve Street and conducted a stop,” Arnold said. “When Jacob was placed into handcuffs, he would not unclench his fists. Officers were able to unclench his first and a Ziploc back with a brown substance fell to the ground. The preliminary test result of the substance indicated the substance was heroin.”
Court documents indicate a pat search of Notar also yielded a round rubber container in his left shirt pocket. Four pills were located inside the rubber container, all of which were controlled substances.
“Officers transported Jacob to the Missoula County Detention Center where detention officers advised MPD officers that Jacob had a container concealed on his person near his groin. The container contained a crystalline substance and paraphernalia. The preliminary test results indicate the substance is methamphetamine. Probation and Parole became involved in the incident and when searching his vehicle, a checkbook not belonging to him was located.”
Notar was charged with two counts of felony criminal possession of dangerous drugs.
