A Boise woman is behind bars, facing five felony counts of injury to a child after law enforcement discovered what they call dangerous and deplorable living conditions.
Boise Police officers were dispatched to a home near North Five Road and West Fairview Avenue after an anonymous citizen tip that alleged illegal drug use at the residence. That's where police found six children, ages 3 to 16 inside the residence, one of them a visitor to the home.
Police say they discovered multiple marijuana and meth smoking devices, several syringes, multiple prescription medications and meth residue. All of the substances were within reach of the children. Police said they also found a non-working refrigerator containing meat and milk, old food and garbage throughout the house and what appeared to be feces in the living area.
All five of the children who lived in the home were placed into the custody of the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare and the child who was visiting was released to the custody of a parent.
Gia Rose, 34, was charged with five counts of injury to a child, possession of meth, prescription drugs in other than the original container, and drug paraphernalia.
