May 21, 2020 - While Idaho's Stay Healthy Order, currently in Stage 2, continues to recommend folks minimize non-essential travel, the long holiday weekend may be a time some Idahoans choose to responsibly and safely reconnect with family and friends. Idaho State Police Troopers want those traveling through Central Idaho this weekend to know troopers will be out at full staff patrolling roadways from Lewiston to Riggins and beyond, working to keep motorists safe.

"We want this Memorial Day holiday to be a time we honor those who've sacrificed for our nation, and as appropriate, to enjoy friends and family." said Sgt. Chris Middleton with the ISP District 2 Patrol Division. "The current pandemic that's hit our nation has meant extra anxiety for some. No one wants the added stress or tragedy that comes from being involved in a crash caused by irresponsible driving. That's why we're asking motorists to take extra precaution this holiday weekend, and why our troopers will be out ready to assist and enforce traffic laws."

Idaho State troopers in Central Idaho will join partner law enforcement agencies in assisting motorists with unforeseen vehicle issues as well as watching out for driving offenses that often cause crashes, such as driving under the influence (DUI), distracted driving, and drowsy driving among others.

On behalf of everyone at the Idaho State Police, please have a safe and fun Memorial Day weekend. Drive safe, drive sober and please use good judgment.

Please direct questions to the ISP HQ Public Information Office

May, 18, 2020 - Troopers with the Idaho State Police arrested an Arizona man last weekend on multiple charges after a DUI investigation turned into threats of explosives.

What Happened: Saturday morning, May 16, at approximately 1:00 am, an Idaho State Police trooper observed a vehicle exceeding the posted speed limit traveling eastbound Interstate 84 in Nampa. The trooper stopped the vehicle. As the trooper spoke with the driver, the driver told the trooper explosives were present in his vehicle.

Concerned for the safety of the public, as well as for the driver and his passenger, troopers closed the eastbound lanes of the interstate and called for assistance. Officers from the Nampa Police Department specially trained in explosive detection responded. Caldwell officers also assisted ISP troopers in closing traffic lanes. The Nampa officers were eventually able to confirm explosives were, in fact not present in the suspect vehicle. During the investigation, eastbound traffic was closed for approximately three hours until troopers could assure the interstate was safe for travel.

Further investigation found the driver to be under the influence of alcohol and in possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. The suspect was booked into the Canyon County Jail on the following charges:

Arrested: Michael Jacob Rosequist, 28, Arizona

Charged: Use of Weapons of Mass Destruction (F) ISC 18-3322
Resisting & Obstructing an Officer (m)
Driving Under the Influence (m)
Possession of a Controlled Substance (m )
Possession of Paraphernalia with Intent to Use ( m)

May 15, 2020 - Idaho State Police are investigating a single vehicle crash that was reported at 6:00 this morning on Interstate 15 at mile marker 105, west of Shelley.

Two people, a man and woman, both from Arizona, were traveling northbound in a Ford Econoline box truck when the vehicle left the interstate on the left shoulder, went into the median and struck an embankment. No other vehicles were involved. The cause of the crash remains under investigation.

The female passenger in the truck, Ann Watson, 38, of Phoenix Arizona, was pronounced dead on scene. The male driver, Christopher Kracht, 40, also of Phoenix Arizona, was transported via air ambulance to Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center in Idaho Falls, where he also succumbed to his injuries. Kracht was wearing a seatbelt, Watson was not. Next of kin has been notified.

Information given to investigating troopers is the rented box truck being driven by Mr. Kracht was part of a nonprofit animal rescue network. 48 dogs of mixed breeds and sizes were being transported inside the truck. The dogs were being taken to Calgary, Alberta, Canada for adoption. All the dogs appeared to have been in kennels. Investigating troopers say, sadly, in addition to the two people killed in the crash, 14 of the dogs were also found deceased.

The Blackfoot Animal Shelter and Rescue is assisting with the safe handling of the dogs that have been located following the crash. At this time, 18 dogs have been found. Local veterinarians are also reportedly assisting the shelter with providing medical care to injured animals.

At this time, approximately 16 animals are unaccounted for. Despite searching the interstate area, troopers have been unable to locate any more of the missing dogs. Anyone who locates a stray animal in the area is urged to contact Bingham County animal control.

A representative of the animal rescue network tells troopers they are en route to Bingham County. They plan to pick up the remaining dogs and safely continue onto Canada where shelters are waiting to place the dogs in adopted homes.

Idaho State Police Emergency Communications Officer credited with saving missing Idaho teen

(Meridian) When a young girl was reported missing on Thursday, April 16th, in Southern Idaho, an Idaho State Police Regional Communications Supervisor's (RCS) attention to detail and quick action made the difference. When the notification came into the ISP Emergency Communications Center, it was originally received as an attempt-to-locate for a missing juvenile, possible runaway from Southern Idaho. But instead of just forwarding the information to ISP Troopers and other law enforcement officers, RCS DeLisa Orren dug a little deeper into the information, and what she found helped law enforcement officials issue an AMBER Alert and recover the teen.

Colonel Kedrick Wills said of RCS Orren's actions, "The goal of the Idaho State Police is changing and saving lives, and this is an outstanding example of ISP saving lives. The action DeLisa took that night made the difference between this girl being returned to her family and being abducted by people who could have caused her harm."

Although the information included in the attempt to locate suggested the juvenile had possibly run away, RCS Orren began looking further into the people possibly associated with the missing juvenile. When she found information that linked the suspects to previous assaults and human trafficking, she worked quickly to contact the Rupert P.D. detectives and connect them with the Idaho AMBER Alert System.

Thanks to RCS Orren's efforts, in less than 24 hours after the juvenile was reported missing, she was located by California Highway Patrol troopers near Donner Pass, California. The two men suspected of abducting the girl were arrested and charged with kidnapping. Additional charges for human trafficking are pending further investigation. Three other juveniles, who were with their non-custodial mother and shortly due back in Idaho with the custodial parent, were also located with the Idaho teen.

Rupert P.D. Detective Kuoha said this about RCS Orren's actions, "Working in a small agency, an extra set of eyes from an experienced agency always helps, and in this case helped recover the missing juvenile. Time is critical for recovery in a child abduction, and it may have been too late if not for the work of Ms. Orren".

The action taken by DeLisa is not uncharacteristic for her or any of the people who work in ISP's two emergency communications centers. These people are genuinely dedicated to serving the citizens of Idaho and take the role they play very personally. Because of their work, this young girl was returned safely to her family," said ISP Captain Kevin Haight.

RCS Orren has served with the Idaho State Police for over 15 years and is currently a supervisor at ISP's emergency communications center in Meridian. ISP has 43 emergency communications officers, or regional communications officers, working from two centers, Meridian and Coeur d?Alene, who work 24 hours per day, 365 days per year, and on average, answer 567 calls for service every day.

4/16/20 Rupert PD AMBER Alert Summary

IDAHO STATE POLICE NEWS RELEASE
ISP Headquarters, 700 S. Stratford Dr., Meridian 83642
(208) 884-7122
Fax (208) 846-7520

For Immediate Release: 4/17/2020 5:35 PM
Please direct questions to Tecia Ferguson, PIO

On Thursday afternoon, April 16th, 2020 the Rupert Police Department received notification that a 14 year old female was reported missing by her mother. Rupert PD and Minidoka Sheriff's Office sent out notification to Law Enforcement of the missing child. After discussions with ISP on the qualifications of an AMBER Alert, we deemed there was enough information to issue an AMBER Alert.

During the process of issuing the AMBER Alert, Rupert PD received credible information that the suspect and vehicle were just crossing over into California. ISP continued with the AMBER Alert activation of all road signs, lottery terminals, 511 information, news and radio broadcasts.

Due to the credible information of the suspect and victim possibly being in California, it was determined that is was not necessary to send a statewide Wireless Emergency Alert (WEA) in Idaho. WEA notifications allow Law Enforcement to quickly notify cell phone users in a particular area to be on the lookout for the victim, suspect(s) or vehicle. WEA technology has the ability to target specific areas, as to not disrupt the entire state of Idaho population and sending notifications to regions, unnecessarily.

As soon as Rupert PD was aware of the suspect and vehicle possibly being in California, ISP and Rupert PD reached out to the California Highway Patrol (CHP) to issue a targeted AMBER Alert for the child and suspect in the suspected area of California.

After the AMBER Alert activation in Idaho, Rupert PD received a tip on the second suspect. Rupert PD and ISP, felt that a targeted WEA notification to southern Idaho and limited counties, could possibly assist in the apprehension of a second suspect. The WEA notification was issued at 2300 (MDT).

At approximately 2138 (MDT), CHP issued an AMBER Alert along the Interstate 80 corridor. Approximately 0104 (MDT) on April 17th, the officers made contact with one suspect and vehicle in the Westbound Donner Summit Rest Area. After further investigation CHP officers were able to track suspect two and the victim in the snow that led north through the forest. The child was placed with California CPS and the two suspects were arrested on kidnapping charges.

Once confirmation of the child was received by Rupert PD and ISP, the AMBER Alert was canceled at approximately 0245 (MDT). Rupert PD and ISP would like to thank CHP for their participation and quick action in safely recovering our missing child.

The Suggested criteria for an AMBER Alert are:
1. A child is known or suspected by law enforcement officials to have been abducted; The child is not simply missing/runaway/lost; abduction must be suspected;
2. The abduction occurred within 12 hours of initial activation of AMBER Alert;
3. The child must be 17 years or younger, or with a proven mental or physical disability, and police must believe that the child has been abducted (unwillingly taken from his or her environment without permission from the child's parent or guardian);
4. Law enforcement must believe the child is in imminent danger of serious bodily harm or death;
5. There must be enough descriptive information to believe that an AMBER Alert will assist in the recovery of the child (must include as much of the following information as possible);
a. Where the abduction took place;
b. A specific physical description of the child (can include clothing worn when last seen; height, weight, age, hair and eye color, hair length, any additional distinguishing physical characteristics);
c. A physical description of the abductor can include approximate height, weight, hair color/length, eye/skin color, clothing; any distinguishing physical characteristics;
d. Place last seen; direction of travel if known;
e. Description of the vehicle should include color, year, make, body model, license number, and state.
6. The child must be entered in NCIC.
