Feb. 16 – An Idaho man was arrested Friday on suspicion of drug possession in Lake Liberty for driving a group of teenage girls in Brown’s addition less than an hour after his release on Sunday.
According to court data, 31-year-old Marcus D. Goodman Friday at 8 p.m. He was driving around Lake Liberty in his 20s when a local police officer took him back on a bumper without a license plate.
While the officer was running Goodman’s Idaho driver’s license, he found that his license had been revoked, և Goodman had the right to commit a felony driving out of Idaho, according to court records.
While searching for Goodman during the arrest, Goodman told the officer that he had drugs in his pocket, according to court records. Goodman had a small bag containing a black, white crystalline substance, which was positive in the field for heroin and methamphetamine, respectively.
Goodman was arrested on suspicion of possession of a controlled substance and was remanded in custody at Spokane County Jail.
He was released two days later. At around 10pm on Sunday, Goodman walked from jail to Brown’s addition where he spotted a group of teenage girls getting out of their car parked on Elm Street, according to court records.
The girls told police that Goodman had preached to them, asking them to go for a walk and recharge their phones. The girls told police they had started to get out of their Toyota Rav4 to get in. When Goodman returned, he told the driver he had a gun and had to get out of the car, according to court records.
According to the court, he took the driver out of the car and took his place in the driver’s seat, while heading north to Elm. The driver was not injured.
Numerous witnesses saw the incident from nearby samples; one, according to court records, tried to drive the suspect back in their car.
The stolen car, according to court records, was seen at the Maverick gas station at 1019 E. Francis Ave, which was on the stolen car, just before 1 am.
After the arrest, Goodman told police he was tired from walking outside in the cold and saw the girls standing around their car, according to court records.
He asked them for a walk. When they refused, he got in the car and drove away, but refused to tell the girls that he had a weapon, according to court records.
Goodman has a long criminal record in Idaho, dating back to 2008 on charges of theft. He was arrested four times in 2020 alone.
For this week’s incidents, he is threatened with two counts of possession of controlled substance – one count of second-degree robbery.
