LEWISTON - Detectives with the Idaho State Police in a collaborative operation with the Nez Perce Tribal Police, arrested six people on Tuesday afternoon on charges involving methamphetamine in rented hotel room at the Clearwater River Casino in Lewiston. The arrests were made after serving a search warrant on the motel room and seizing approximately two ounces (56.69 grams) of methamphetamine.

Sara M. Rasmussen, 38, of Clarkston, Washington, was arrested for felony trafficking of methamphetamine. Under Idaho law trafficking of methamphetamine in an amount of at least 28 grams, but less than 200 grams, carries a mandatory minimum fixed sentence of three (3) years in prison and a fine of not less than ten thousand dollars ($10,000).

The five other suspects were arrested for frequenting a place where illegal substances are used for their role in the activities taking place in the motel room where the warrant was served. These suspects are Chris A. Tannahill, 41, of Clarkston, Lisa B. Bond, 37, of Lewiston, Rodney R. Olson, 35, of Clarkston, Guy N. Bumpus, 48, of Clarkston, and Tommie E. Davis, Jr., 34, of Clarkston. Under Idaho law the penalty for frequenting is punishable by a fine of up to three hundred dollars ($300) and/or up to ninety (90) days in jail.

The six suspects, all non-tribal members, were booked into the Nez Perce County Jail. Rasmussen will be arraigned in Second District Court, while the other five suspects will be scheduled to appear in Second District Magistrate Court.

Idaho State Police detectives and Nez Perce Tribal Police continue to investigate this case.
