Everett C. Johnson, 63, Garfield, has been summoned to appear in court Aug. 31 on a charge of possession of methamphetamine. The charge was filed against Johnson Aug. 17.

According to the investigation report, Johnson was taken into custody March 14 when a Palouse/Garfield officer was called to the Garfield City Clerk's office where Johnson had appeared. The arrest report said Johnson was believed to be under the influence of drugs after he gave a varying account about people who were in his house and threatening him.

During the interview, Johnson was alleged to have pulled two small metal containers out of his pocket. One allegedly contained a drug pipe and the other allegedly contained four grams of methamphetamine.

Johnson was transported to Whitman Hospital in Colfax to undergo detoxification, the report said.
