    Boise Police received a report of a man banging on the back door of a residence early this morning (November 27th) at approximately 1:40 a.m. at a home on the 5300 block of Cassia Street. When officers arrived they located the suspect in the back yard of the home. Witnesses say the man, who appeared to be very intoxicated at the time, was heard yelling and banging on the door and asking for a female who did not live at the residence. The suspect was unable to tell police where he was, or where was going. It appears as though the man had gone to the wrong home looking for the woman. The suspect emptied his pockets trying to find out if he had enough money to get a cab and displayed a pill bottle with the labels pulled off. Officers determined the pill bottle contained several ecstacy pills. Officers also recovered a baggie containing a small amount of Meth and a prescription medication that the suspect did not have a prescription for. The suspect was transported to the Ada County Jail and booked on the above listed charges.
