The Idaho State Police and Clark County Sheriff's Office seized $30,343.00 on December 17, 2009 while conducting follow up investigation on a traffic crash that occurred on December 13, 2009 on I-15 milepost 175.8 (South of Spencer). Idaho State Police Cpl. Wayne Scoggins and Clark County Sheriff's Deputy Carl Scoggins investigated a single vehicle roll over in which the occupants had left the scene prior to law enforcements' arrival. Indicators of possible drug activity led to the subsequent assistance of Jefferson County's drug alert dog, and the dog's handler Sgt. Aaron Williams.

On December 17, 2009, Cpl. Scoggins made arrangements to meet with California resident Anthony Serna (33 years of age) the driver from the crash that occurred on December 13, 2009 at the Clark County Sheriff's Office. Serna was traveling with California resident Donald Javaux (38 years of age) who was a passenger in the crash, and Montana resident Thomas Mahan (21 years of age) who was not involved in the crash. Further investigation by Cpl. Wayne Scoggins, Clark County Deputies Carl Scoggins & Bart May, and the Idaho State Police Investigations Office led to the seizure of $30,343.00; felony charges of manufacturing of marijuana, misdemeanor possession of marijuana and misdemeanor possession of paraphernalia. Additionally, Serna was charged with leaving the scene of a crash.
