Boise police officers arrested two suspects on felony drug charges on Thursday.

Chanel Mccord, 32 of Boise, and Jared Burchett, 39 from Kuna, were both arrested after Boise Police and the U.S. Marshal's Task Force followed up on a prior investigation and located the two suspects. Both men were found at a hotel in the 7000 block of W. Overland Road and taken into custody, according to Boise Police.
