A 20-year-old Ketchum man faces a felony drug charge after he was allegedly caught with a pound of marijuana last week by the Blaine County Narcotics Enforcement Team.
Cody Cooper Caccia has now been charged in 5th District Court with the felony crime of trafficking in marijuana and the misdemeanor crime of "resisting or obstructing officers."
He was arrested on Sept. 28 after the Narcotics Enforcement Team, commonly referred to as the NET, served a search warrant at his residence in west Ketchum.
According to a NET press release: "As deputies entered the residence, Caccia jumped from a second-story balcony with approximately one pound of marijuana in hand. Caccia dropped the illegal narcotics as he fled on foot. Caccia was later taken into custody by officers after Caccia was founding hiding in a van approximately three blocks away from his residence."
Caccia was released from the Blaine County jail later that day after posting $15,000 bond. He made an initial court appearance on Sept. 29.
Hailey attorney Christopher Simms has been appointed public defender. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Oct. 12 in Blaine County Magistrate Court.
