Three people have been booked into the Ada County Jail, facing felony drug trafficking charges.

Following a month-long narcotics investigation, members of the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Boise Area Narcotics and Drug Interdiction Team (BANDIT,) and Boise Police officers served search warrants on two homes near the intersection of Roosevelt and Camas Streets late Tuesday evening. 

At one home, officers said they found 110 grams of methamphetamine which, evidence indicated, belonged to Ashley Lindley, 30, of Boise. 

In another area of the house, officers found 70 grams of meth they believed belonged to Samual Kleint, 34, of Fruitland. 

At the same time on Tuesday evening, officers served a search warrant at a separate home in the area.

As officers searched the residence, they say they discovered a suspect -- later identified as Ana Ruiz, 31, of Boise -- trying to flush narcotics down a toilet. Officers took Ruiz into custody and retrieved a plastic bag containing 45 grams of suspected meth.

Lindley was arrested for drug trafficking and intent to deliver a controlled substance. Both are felonies.

Kleint was arrested for felony drug trafficking.

Ruiz was arrested for felony drug trafficking and destruction of evidence, a misdemeanor.
