   Warrant Arrested: Derek L. Miller, 24, Boise

   Warrant Charges:Possession of Obscene Materials (F)

The suspect was taken into custody on an outstanding felony warrant for Possession of Obscene Materials yesterday.

The arrest warrant stems from an ongoing investigation into a tip received from the ICAC network. Evidence indicates the suspect had downloaded underage pornography from the internet starting in June of last year. At this time detectives have no evidence that the victims include local individuals. That investigative information was forwarded to the Ada County Prosecuting Attorney's Office and resulted in the felony warrant.
