On May 3, 2022, a Missoula Police Department officer responded to a traffic stop that was performed by another officer at 930 N Russell Street. When the second officer arrived, the original officer was already talking through the passenger side window with the driver of the vehicle. Lydia Arnold, Police Public Information Officer, explains.

“Officers performed a traffic stop on a vehicle for an equipment violation,” Arnold said. “When officers contacted the driver, Jessi Guardipee, officers noticed a physical indication of Guardipee trying to avoid eye contact and making erratic body movements. After positively identifying Guardipee, the dispatcher informed that Guardipee had felony warrants. Officers placed Guardipee under arrest and probation and parole became involved.

One officer observed Guardipee behavior consistent with drug use in his experience and training, such as rapid body movements, avoidance of eye contact, and body tremors.

At one point, Guardipee attempted to hide her purse under several objects in the car. Officers were later informed that Guardipee was on felony probation and had a warrant for her arrest.

“A probation search was requested by Probation and Parole,” Arnold said. “During the search, dangerous drugs that tested positive for methamphetamine were located along with paraphernalia used in the distribution and use of dangerous drugs. This matter is still under investigation. with the Missoula Police Department Detective Division.

In Guardipee’s purse which she attempted to conceal, officers found four Ziploc bags containing methamphetamine, two glass smoking pipes, four syringes, a digital scale, seven canisters commonly used to prepare dangerous drugs for injection, a blue tourniquet, eight vials of saline solution and a large supply of Ziploc bags. One of the bags contained more of the substance than the others.

Court documents say Guardipee admitted that the substance found in her purse was methamphetamine and that she had purchased it earlier in the day.

Guardipee is currently charged with criminal possession of dangerous drugs with intent to distribute.
