Motel evacuated after search for wanted person


Motel residents are being allowed to return to their rooms after a search for a wanted person.

Boise Police spokeswoman Haley Williams said officers found the suspect dead inside the hotel. Officers believe the person died from an apparent drug overdose, but that will have to be confirmed by the coroner, according to Williams.

The search began at 5 a.m. at the Motel 6 on Airport Way. Williams said police were assisting parole and probation with a warrant. As a precaution, they evacuated the motel.

Officers began clearing the scene before noon. The suspect’s name has not yet been released.
