   Boise Police on patrol Saturday evening, March 17th, at approximately 10:00 p.m. observed a vehicle fail to signal and conduct an improper lane change on the 1500 block of West State Street. Officers quickly determined the suspect vehicle belonged to Khan Saheb, who had a current warrant for his arrest on felony charges. Officers conducted a felony type traffic stop on the vehicle which had several occupants at the time. After taking the suspect into custody, officers recovered a water device used to smoke marijuana and determined it belonged to Saheb. Officers also located five prescription pills in a bag belonging to a passenger, Lodaicy Teldeschi, who did not have the required documentation for the pills. The suspects were booked at the Ada County Jail on the above listed charges.

   The felony arrest warrant for Khan Saheb stems from an ongoing investigation into property and electronics damaged at an apartment on the 3100 block of South Apple Street during an altercation on March 15th of this year. Evidence indicates the suspect was involved in destroying a television, furniture and other items after being told to leave the residence. That investigative information was forwarded to the Ada County Prosecuting Attorney's Office and resulted in the felony warrant.
