Following a month-long narcotics investigation, members of the DEA, the Boise Area Narcotics and Drug Interdiction Team (B.A.N.D.I.T.) and Boise Police Officers served search warrants on two homes near the intersection of Roosevelt and Camas late Tuesday evening.  At one residence, officers located 110 grams of methamphetamine which evidence indicated to belong to Lindley.  In a separate location in the residence, officers located 70 grams of meth believed to belong to Kleint.  At the same time on Tuesday evening, officers served a search warrant at a separate residence in the area.  As officers searched the residence they discovered a suspect, identified as Ruiz, attempting to flush narcotics down a toilet.  Officers took Ruiz into custody and retrieved a plastic bag containing 45 grams of suspected meth. 

All three suspects were transported to the Ada County Jail where they were booked under the above charges.
