BOISE, Idaho — Police have arrested four people in connection with alleged drug activity at a Boise home.

After investigators received what they described as “multiple tips and neighborhood (resident) concerns regarding possible narcotics activities” at a home on the 4800 block of Cresthaven Drive, members of the Boise Police Neighborhood Contact Officer Unit began investigating the home in August of this year.

Dispatch records confirm officers and paramedics had responded to the home three times since April of last year for narcotics-related overdose incidents, according to a Boise Police Department news release.

Armed with a warrant, officers searched the house Tuesday morning, locating what they said were over four grams of suspected heroin in a room belonging to two of four people living in the house at the time. The two were identified as Charles Payment, 27, of Boise and Makayla Cox, 26, of Caldwell.

Officers also say they found what appears to be meth and heroin in a room belonging to Tyler Sprague, 28, of Boise -- and suspected marijuana and paraphernalia which reportedly belonged to Wyatt Murie, 29, also of Boise.

All four suspects were booked into the Ada County Jail.
Payment and Cox each face a felony drug trafficking charge.

Sprague faces two felony counts of possession of a controlled substance, and one misdemeanor count of drug paraphernalia possession.

Murie was charged with possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. Both are misdemeanors.
