Second Suspect in HIDTA Task Force Drug Bust Appears in Court
60 year-old Darrell Davis appeared via video from the Missoula County Jail on Monday as the second defendant in a HIDTA Drug Task Force arrest that occurred last Tuesday at a home on Mullan Trail.
Deputy Missoula County Attorney Caitlin Williams asked for Davis’ bond to be continued at $200,000.
“This defendant and his spouse were selling meth in a residential neighborhood and were in possession of 52 guns and thousands of rounds of ammunition, said Williams. “The quantity of meth was approximately 662 user quantities. These defendants were distributing large quantities of meth to many users in Missoula.”
Williams then referenced Davis’ wife and her role in the operation.
“The codefendant Victoria is also a federal felon for bank robbery and is prohibited from possessing any firearms. The state considers both of the defendants to be very dangerous, and thus given the danger to the community and the defendants possession of a large amount of cash, the state feels that a high bail is warranted and most notably his codefendant’s bond was also set at $200,000.”
Judge Alex Beal continued Davis’ bail at $200,000 and ordered Davis to be placed in the pretrial supervision program should he make bail.
According to court documents, the Davis’ home, the drugs, all the weapons and cash were seized during the raid.
