Sanchez Arrested on Drug Charges

Posted: Updated:
GREAT FALLS - A Great Falls man who is facing multiple drug charges, made his initial appearance in Cascade County Justice Court today.

Adam Sanchez is facing three felony charges, one of which is criminal possession of dangerous drugs with intent to distribute.
    
According to court documents, police responded to reports of two males with guns, and that's when they found Sanchez.

While police restrained him, a bag of meth fell out of the car, and while driving to the detention center, Sanchez reportedly threw multiple bags of meth onto I-15.  

By the time they arrived to the center, the backseat of the patrol car was covered in crystal particles.

Charging documents claim that a total of seven ounces of meth was found. His bond was set at $75,000.
