Caldwell PD: Armed and dangerous felon on the loose

NAMPA, Idaho (KBOI) - Police are trying to track down a man they say is armed and dangerous and may have eluded police during an hours-long standoff Monday afternoon.

Caldwell Police say they have been looking for Fabian Salinas, who's wanted on several felony warrants including aggravated assault on a police officer, eluding, aggravated battery, burglary and felony drug possession.

Caldwell Police says they received word that Salinas was at a house on Gossamer Street in Nampa. Officers as well as a SWAT team searched the house for several hours but were unable to find Salinas.

It's unclear whether Salinas was at the home at the time and managed to escape, or if he was never home at the time.

The family tells KBOI that a 21-year-old woman that lives at the home is Salinas' girlfriend. They have two children together and one on the way.

Salinas is considered armed and dangerous.

Anyone with information is asked to call 343-COPS.
