NAMPA, Idaho — A Nampa man has been arrested for inappropriately touching a child, and police say there could be more victims.

A Canyon County Grand Jury indicted Jerecho Zahara, charging him with one count of lewd conduct with a child under sixteen and two counts of sexual abuse of a child under sixteen.

“This incident occurred at a residence in the 2600 block of Skyview Drive in Nampa,” said Nampa Police Investigator Gary Marang. “Due to the number of children that were in contact with Jerecho, there are concerns there may be more victims.”

Anyone with information on possible victims is asked to call Nampa Police Detective Chris Davenport at 208-468-5623 or Crimestoppers at 208-343 COPS.
