 Warrant Arrested: Fred W. Lindau, 32, Boise

 Warrant Arrested: Crystal M. Lindau, 28, Boise

  Warrant Charges: Injury to a Child (F)

    The suspects were taken into custody on outstanding felony warrants for Injury to a Child yesterday.

   The arrest warrants stem from an ongoing investigation into poor conditions in a home discovered on January 12th of this year. On that date, police assisted emergency personnel on a medical call at a home on the 3800 block of west Grover street. While in the home officers discovered rotting food, exposed electrical outlets and human feces spread throughout the residence. At the time, two children under the age of five lived in the residence. The children where turned over to the custody of the Idaho State Department of Health and Welfare. That investigative information was forwarded to the Ada County Prosecuting Attorney's Office and resulted in the felony warrants.
