Boise Police arrested the suspect, Bliley early last night after detectives found evidence she was intentionally preventing a child from being returned to individuals with legal custody of the child. The child and the suspect are known to each other. Boise Police were contacted yesterday, August 13th, by the child's legal guardian that the child had not returned home in a timely manner. Officers from patrol and the Special Victim's Unit began investigating. During their investigation, detectives found evidence that also indicated the suspect intentionally had placed the child into a situation likely to cause harm to that child. Officers spent several hours searching and were able to locate the child and the suspect at a motel. As officers were trying to take the suspect into custody, she fought and struggled. Officers were able to ensure the child was returned to the child's legal guardian. The suspect was booked into the Ada County Jail.
