Comments Off on Devin Neil Farley, 33, of Corvallis, facing Methamphetamine charges after mom turns him in

A 33-year-old Corvallis man is facing two felony drug counts after his mother went to authorities, allegedly with evidence of his drug use.

Devin Neil Farley appeared this week before Ravalli County Justice of the Peace Jim Bailey on two felony charges of criminal possession of dangerous drugs and misdemeanor counts of possession of drugs and paraphernalia.

An affidavit in the case said Farley’s mother called the sheriff’s office to report that her son was using dangerous drugs.

When a deputy arrived on the scene, she allegedly turned over a container containing methamphetamine, two capsules of Methoxetamine, marijuana, a Lorazepam tablet, and nine capsules that later tested positive for the presence of marijuana.

She told the deputy that Farley had turned the drugs over to her.

A day later, sheriff’s officers met with Farley. After being advised of his rights, the affidavit said Farley identified the crystals in the container as methamphetamine and said the clear capsules contained Methoxetamine, a designer drug that doesn’t currently meet the state’s dangerous drug definition. He also told them he did not have a prescription for the Lorazepam pill.

Farley then allegedly surrendered various glass pipes, a water bong, marijuana pipes, and a small black container that contained hash oil.

Bailey set bail at $2,500.


In Justice of the Peace Jennifer Ray’s court

  • Todd P. Schiffman, 51, of Hamilton appeared on a felony charge of possession of dangerous drugs and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.

Schiffman was arrested on March 16 after he came into the county sheriff’s office to turn in some drugs he’d discovered.

Schiffman said he found a marijuana pipe and a bag of methamphetamine in a parking lot in Florence.

When asked if he was willing to submit a urine test for the presence of drugs, Schiffman refused. He told the officer that he had ingested the methamphetamine by licking it to determine if it was “speed.”

This was the second time this year that Schiffman had turned himself in.

On Jan. 21, he stopped at the sheriff’s office to let the undersheriff know that he had consumed methamphetamine two days earlier.

A urine sample tested positive for the drug in that incident. Schiffman also surrendered a syringe that he told the officer he planned to use to “shoot speed.”

Schiffman was out of jail on those initial charges under conditions that he not use dangerous drugs.

Ray set bail at $20,000.
