Missoula, MT (KGVO-AM News) - On June 9, 2024, Missoula Police Department Officers were called to 3640 Brooks St., commonly known as Kohl’s, for a report of occupants of a black Ford Focus smoking something from tinfoil. The 911 caller reported two vehicles drove up to the black Ford, got into the Ford, and the occupants began smoking something from tinfoil. The caller also provided a Montana license plate.

Officers responded and made contact with the Ford, which was occupied by 28-year-old Jori Hurckes. One officer immediately observed tinfoil in the cup holders of the car as well as a tooter straw, which he recognized as being a cut plastic straw that is commonly used to inhale or snort dangerous drugs. 

Hurckes was asked to exit the vehicle. An officer read Hurckes her Miranda rights and upon inquiry, Hurckes admitted she had been smoking “blues” with an individual who was inside Kohl’s shopping. Hurckes stated the individual was inside and had approximately 12 “blues on him”. 

Hurckes consented to a search of her purse and within her purse, an officer found a wallet with a zippered pocket. Within the zippered pocket, the officer found a pink tooter straw and two pieces of tinfoil. The officer opened the two pieces of tinfoil and found a white crystal substance inside one of them and there were a couple of bigger crystals as well. The officer recognized this substance as methamphetamine, and it was later confirmed via the TruNarc as methamphetamine.
