The arrest was made by Bonneville County Sheriff’s deputies. Authorities identified the suspect as Cody W. Seymore, 32, of Rexburg.

Based on these confirmations, the deputy asked Seymore if he was in possession of meth at the time.

He was then transported to the Bonneville County Jail and charged with several offenses. These include driving under the influence second offense, misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia, misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance, and felony possession of meth.
