The informant called Taitague on Sept. 13 and asked him for $50 worth of “ice.” Taitague agreed to meet the informant and gave the person a small, sealed straw, court documents state.
The straw contained about 0.1 gross grams of crystal methamphetamine, which was turned over to police who confirmed through a field test that the substance contained methamphetamine, documents state.
The informant called Taitague another time and asked for $100 worth of “ice.” The pair met and Taitague gave the informant two straws, which weighed about 0.3 gross grams, court documents state. That was also turned over to police and tested presumptive positive for methamphetamine.
On Monday, the informant called Taitague again and asked for another $50 worth of “ice.” They met, and the informant bought one straw. The white crystalline substance inside the straw tested presumptive positive for methamphetamine, court papers state.
The calls between the informant and Taitague were recorded, according to the magistrate’s complaint.
Taitague faces three counts each of distributing a Schedule II controlled substance as a first-degree felony and possession of a Schedule II controlled substance as a third-degree felony. PACIFIC DAILY NEW [/restrict]
