After receiving multiple drug-related tips from neighbors about a home on the 6200 block of Russett Street, Boise Police officers began investigating the residence back in August.  Patrol officers, Neighborhood Contact Officers, and members of the Boise Police Gang Unit were all involved in the investigation, which was forwarded to the Ada County Prosecutor’s Office for review.  A search warrant was issued for the home, which was carried out by members of the Boise Police Special Operations Unit on Thursday morning.  Four people were found inside the home at the time and detained.  Officers searching the house recovered suspected heroin, a digital scale, multiple empty baggies, and other drug-related paraphernalia.  Two firearms were also recovered in the search.  Three of the suspects, identified as McCollum, Amlin, and Scott, were arrested and charged with multiple drug-related charges.  The fourth was cited for frequenting a place where drugs are used and released.

During the investigation officers found evidence that a young child had previously spent time at the home and had been exposed to drug use and deplorable living conditions.  The child’s mother, McCollum, and roommate Amlin were later charged with felony injury to child in addition to the narcotics related charges resulting from Thursday’s search warrant.
