BOISE – Gabe Crow Inglis, 27, of Boise, Idaho, pleaded guilty today to possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance, U.S. Attorney Bart M. Davis announced.  A federal grand jury indicted Inglis on October 12, 2017.  


According to court records, Inglis was pulled over for a traffic violation on December 14, 2016 by an Idaho State police officer.  During the course of the stop, the officer smelled the odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle.  Inglis admitted to the officer that he had smoked marijuana and had possessed marijuana earlier that day.  Subsequently, the officer searched the vehicle and found two mason jars filled with a white flakey substance in the trunk.  The officer sent the substance to the Idaho State Police Forensics Lab for testing. A lab analyst determined that the substance was tetrahydrocannabinolic acid, a Schedule I controlled substance.


Sentencing is set for April 18, 2018, in front of U.S. District Judge David C. Nye at the federal courthouse in Boise. 


The crime of possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance is punishable by up to 20 years imprisonment, at least three years of supervised release, and a $250,000 fine.

This case was investigated by the Idaho State Police and the Drug Enforcement Administration.
