Police: heroin found in man’s pants during jail search

A man arrested last week on felony drug warrants is facing additional charges after Spokane County Jail officers found a substance appearing to be heroin rolled into aluminum foil in the man’s pants.

According to court documents, Jameson Farrar, 37, was reluctant to spread his legs during a search as he was booked into jail last Friday. As a jail officer escorted Farrar into the booking room, an aluminum foil ball fell from Farrar’s pants.

The officer conducted a strip search and found a second foil-wrapped ball in Farrar’s pants. Both contained a brown substance. A Spokane County Sheriff’s Office deputy did a field test and found both to be heroin.

Farrar now faces an additional drug possession charge.
