BOISE, Idaho — Three people have been arrested after Boise Police found what they believe is heroin and other drug paraphernalia in a home on Russett Street.

Boise Police officers began investigating the residence back in August. When investigators searched the home, four people were found inside and detained. Officers found suspected heroin, a digital scale, multiple empty baggies, and other drug related paraphernalia. Police also found two firearms.

Three of the suspects, identified as 29-year-old Ashley McCollum, 29-year-old Chambray Amlin, and 26-year-old Austin Scott were all arrested and charged with multiple drug-related charges.
