Ada County Sheriff’s deputies arrested a 19-year-old Boise man late Monday night after finding almost 6 ounces of marijuana in his car — hidden in a “Cat In The Hat” lunchbox.
Bronson T. Hobbing is charged with a felony count possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver.
Hobbing is set for preliminary hearing Dec. 23 and is being held in the Ada County Jail on a $50,000 bond.
A deputy pulled Hobbing’s car over near the Overland/Maple Grove roads intersection around 9:20 p.m. Monday for a burnt-out headlight. The car’s registration was also expired.
It was during that stop when the deputy detected a strong odor of marijuana coming from the car. A short time later an ACSO K-9 dog detected the odor of marijuana coming form the trunk.
That’s where the deputies found a lunchbox containing six bags of marijuana inside.
