c2820c1ThumbOfficer Anderson responds to a call of a disturbance involving a male suspect running down the street with a firearm. After making contact with the suspect, he’s clearly out of breath and claiming he’s  been chasing after a couple guys who were trying to break into his house and install fiber optic wires. Officer Anderson asks him a few more questions and believes he may be under the influence of narcotics. Eventually the suspect admits he recently took what he believed was bath salts that his son gave to him. He then goes onto point out that there were more fiber optic wires right by his feet. After conducting a search of suspect,  multiple pieces of tin foil containing bath salts were found on his person. The suspect was arrested for possessing a controlled substance as well as paraphernalia. 

Officer Wayne Anderson with Boise Police Department is dispatched to welfare check call. While approaching the trailer he can see people inside smoking meth through the window. After backup arrives 2 male suspects exit through the back door and are both detained. Officers then knock on the front door and have the remaining suspects come outside. Once searched, brass knuckles and pocket knives and found on our suspects. After talking to mom who was smoking meth with her son inside, officers recover the remaining drugs. Mom tells Officer Anderson that inside her Bible is a dollar bill with meth in it. Weed and other drug paraphernalia is also found throughout her bedroom. On her bed is a photo of mom when she was a little girl with a line of meth on her face, Officer Anderson asks her if she thinks it’s weird to be snorting lines from her own face. The remaining suspects are all brought back inside and charged with felony possession and are given court dates to appear.

 

Officer Wayne Anderson with Boise PD responds to a call of an Officer needing assistance. Upon arrival an Officer Neville has a suspect detained for possibly being involved in a fight. As Officer Anderson talks to the suspect he begins to get nervous about officers searching his vehicle. K-9 is called out to the location. Officer Wayne asks our suspect if their are any drugs or paraphernalia in his car, after some time he admits to having a weekend party kit in his trunk. A large bong, other pipes are found inside along with marijuana and synthetic urine. The suspect voices his opinions on marijuana use, Officer Wayne explains he understands there are different opinions on marijuana, but the law is what it is in Idaho. He further states because of his cooperation this is why he’s giving him a ticket only and he will get his opportunity to explain his opinion to the judge.

Why Law EnforcementFriend in Houston Texas who was a Constable encouraged me to pursue the career.
First ArrestAs a Cadet we responded to a large fight at a dance. The crowd turned on the Officer I was riding with so I used my side handle baton to strike several people trying to get the Officer. The Officer was impressed enough of my instinct with no experience as a LEO that he asked the Chief to hire me.
Best part of the jobHave always loved the hunt. Looking for people up to no good then catching the suspect in the act is what has always made patrol so intreging.
HobbiesHunt, fish, softball, shoot, hike, ski , watching the St. Louis Rams!
Favorite QuoteI have stolen a quote a female suspect told me once, “they were all causing an Upruckus”.

Why Law EnforcementIt would give me a chance to help people and offer me the opportunity to do something new and exciting everyday
First ArrestMy first foot pursuit: I was with my partner and we witnessed a hand-to-hand drug transaction in downtown Portland.  My partner got out and followed the buyer and I stayed with the seller. My partner followed the buyer for approximately two blocks before he took off running.  My partner radioed that he was in a foot pursuit,  I looked up, and noticed they were more than two blocks away from me.  I then left the guy I was with and took off running after the guy my partner was chasing.  I took a good angle towards them and closed the gap between us within a few seconds.  I hurdled over a four foot wide road divider and when I landed on the other street I was almost hit by an oncoming vehicle. I placed my hand down on the hood of vehicle (as if I was stiff arming it) and then continued to chase the suspect.  I caught up to my partner a few seconds later and then we both grabbed onto the suspect at the same time.  I held my breath ( so I would not sound out of breath) and radioed that we were in custody.  I then looked behind me and saw approximately 10 people running behind me trying to catch up to us. Once the people caught up to us they started congratulating us for how awesome the foot pursuit was.
Best part of the jobCatching and arresting people that do harm to others.
HobbiesExercising, weight lifting, mountaineering, white water rafting.
