Twenty people were arrested in a pair of raids at suspected drug houses in Nampa on Monday and Tuesday, according to the Nampa Police Department.
At 5:30 a.m. Monday, officers served a search warrant and arrested nine individuals at a residence on the 600 block of 7th Avenue North. On Tuesday at 5:30 a.m., an additional 11 people were arrested at a residence on the 600 block of South Olive Street.
The drug-related charges for the people arrested range from frequenting a place where drugs are used or sold to possession of drug paraphernalia.
All 20 were booked at the Canyon County Jail.
“These search warrants are evidence of Nampa Police efforts to disrupt illegal drug activity in the city of Nampa,” Lt. Eric Skoglund of the Nampa Police Special Investigations said in a release. “Places where illicit drug activity is occurring often leads to a higher frequency of other crimes, especially property crimes. We want to help the law-abiding people in these neighborhoods feel safer and more secure in their community.”
