  Warrant Arrested: Jared D. Deppe, 20, Boise

  Warrant Charges:Possession of a Controlled Substance with Intent to Deliver (F)

    The suspect was taken into custody on an outstanding felony warrant for Possession of a Controlled Substance with Intent to Deliver yesterday.

   The arrest warrant stems from an ongoing investigation into the possession of marijuana at a Boise residence on December 1st of last year. On that date, Boise Police responded to a citizens report of a fight at the home. As officers conducted that investigation they observed a bag of marijuana in plain sight. A search of the home revealed a small amount of marijuana in the residence along with other drug paraphernalia and packaging materials. Officers have additional undisclosed evidence that indicates the illegal substance was intended for sale. That investigative information was forwarded to the Ada County Prosecuting Attorney's Office and resulted in the felony warrant.
