Idaho deputies called for suspected burglary find guns, drugs

A man living outside Kingston, Idaho, called Shoshone County deputies Wednesday to report that someone was breaking into his home. Deputies couldn’t locate an intruder when they arrived, but they did find guns and drugs. There was methamphetamine in plain view and there were guns positioned at every window, according to a press release from Shoshone County Sheriff Mitch Alexander. The man, identified as 26-year-old Justin T. Bartlett, “showed signs of paranoia,” Alexander said. Bartlett was booked into the Shoshone County Jail on charges of possession of methamphetamine, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. Alexander said he will revoke a concealed weapons permit that was recently issued to Bartlett.
