TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) — A Twin Falls man was arrested on drug trafficking charges after allegedly selling two pounds of marijuana to a confidential informant.

Christopher D. Pothier, 38, of Twin Falls, was arraigned in Twin Falls magistrate court Friday on two felony drug trafficking charges.

According to police, a confidential informant purchased one pound of marijuana from Pothier in early November. The presumptive marijuana tested positive for THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol.

A month later, a confidential informant allegedly made another controlled purchase of a pound of marijuana from Pothier. The marijuana was turned over to Idaho State Police for testing and to serve as evidence, according to a probable cause affidavit.

Pothier is being held on a $15,000 bond, preliminary hearing set for Dec. 16 at 8:15 a.m. before Judge Calvin Campbell.
