Suspect arrested after lockdown at Boise school

Arrested: Monica Walters-Wolfe, 34, Nampa

Charges: Resisting and obstructing (m), Disorderly conduct (m)

Just before 8:00 a.m. Boise Police officers responded to East Junior High to follow up on a domestic situation after being made aware of a threat against an adult at the school.  To ensure the safety of the staff and students, the school was placed in lockdown. While on scene, officers located the female suspect in a car in the parking lot.  The woman, identified as Monica Walters-Wolfe, had no lawful reason to be at the school.  As officers attempted to take her into custody she resisted briefly.  Wolfe was transported to the Ada County Jail and faces charges of resisting and obstructing police officers and disorderly conduct.        

All students and staff remained safe inside the school while it was in lockdown.  Officers would like to thank the students and parents affected by the lockdown for following safety and security procedures, as well as the Boise School District for their cooperation.
