A police search at a Boise residence Tuesday afternoon uncovered 1.4 grams of methamphetamine, according to the Boise Police Department.

Police were acting on citizen tips when they began to investigate at the West Morris Hill home. When officers found a marijuana pipe on Michelle Jacqueline Wood, 40, they obtained a warrant to search the residence, according to a Wednesday press release. Meth was found inside the home during the search.

Wood was arrested and charged with felony possession of a controlled substance and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia. She was booked into the Ada County Jail.

Boise Police made another meth-related arrest later Tuesday night, at the City Light Home for Women.

Vicki Lynn Paullus, a resident at the shelter, was arrested for possessing .8 grams of meth and a meth pipe.

Officers were responding to a call for assistance from the shelter.

Paullus, 49, was charged with felony possession of a controlled substance and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.

She was booked into the Ada County Jail at 11:30 p.m.

Both women will have an initial court appearance Wednesday.
