An Idaho man has been arrested on four counts of lewd conduct and authorities are concerned that he may have had more victims.

Michael E. Bosse is being held in Ada County Jail on a $500,000 bond in connection to the crimes after being arrested in Twin Falls on Thursday, May 5th.

The victim was allegedly abused by Bosse in the early-to-mid 2000’s at a Boise area home.

Bosse left the Boise area in the late 2000’s and moved to eastern Idaho and Montana before moving back to Twin Falls in 2015. According to ACSO, Bosse drove a school bus in Twin Falls during fall of 2015.

The investigation occurred after law enforcement in Montana found a large amount of child pornography in a storage unit left by Bosse in 2015.  Investigators say they found images of the victim involved in the Ada County case. Montana authorities contacted the Ada County Sheriff’s Office about the find and an investigation was launched.

Authorities identified the victim and sent the findings to Ada County Prosecutors who issued an arrest warrant in late April for Bosse.

Bosse is set to make his initial court appearance Monday afternoon. The crime of lewd conduct is punishable by up to life in prison and additional charges could be filed against Bosse in Twin Falls and Montana.

Anyone with information on Bosse should call Ada County Sheriff’s detectives at 577-3734.
