BOISE – Lawrence Joseph Kren, 64, of Nampa, Idaho, pleaded guilty yesterday in federal court to distributing methamphetamine, U.S. Attorney Wendy J. Olson announced. Kren was indicted by a federal grand jury in Boise on April 8, 2014, charged with three counts of distributing methamphetamine.
According to information presented in court, Kren admitted to selling methamphetamine to another person, who was assisting law enforcement as a confidential informant. Kren admitted that he sold methamphetamine to the informant on three separate occasions in February and March 2014. Kren also admitted that he possessed firearms in connection with the drug distribution offense and that he showed the firearms to the informant.
The charge is punishable by up to twenty years in prison, a maximum fine of $1 million, and at least three years of supervised release. The government is seeking forfeiture of the firearms. Kren is scheduled for sentencing on November 12, 2014, before Chief U.S. District Judge B. Lynn Winmill at the federal courthouse in Boise.
The case was investigated by the Nampa Police Department and Treasure Valley Metro Violent Crimes Task Force. The Metro Task Force is comprised of federal, state and local agencies, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation; Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives; Boise Police Department; Ada County Sheriff’s Office; Caldwell Police Department; Nampa Police Department; Meridian Police Department; Canyon County Sheriff’s Office; and Idaho Department of Probation and Parole.
The case is being prosecuted by the Special Assistant U.S. Attorney hired by the Treasure Valley Partnership and the State of Idaho to address gang crimes. The Treasure Valley Partnership is comprised of a group of elected officials in southwest Idaho dedicated to regional coordination, cooperation, and collaboration on creating coherent regional growth.

(BOISE) – The Idaho Meth Project is pleased to announce its new executive director, Adrean Cavener. She will oversee strategic direction, community outreach and education and fundraising for the organization.
Before joining the Idaho Meth Project, Cavener was director of government relations in Idaho for the American Heart Association and American Stroke Association. She brings over ten years of experience in governmental affairs, volunteer management and donor relations.
She also has an extensive background in youth engagement, both through her work at the Heart Association and her leadership of the American Legion Auxiliary Syringa Girls State program.
“We are very excited for Adrean’s arrival. We know that meth use comes with enormous costs, both in the state budget, but more devastatingly to the living rooms of Idaho families,” First Lady Lori Otter said. “We look forward to the passion and knowledge Adrean will bring to the Idaho Meth Project.”
Cavener has a bachelor’s degree in speech communication and rhetorical studies from Idaho State University. She lives in Meridian with her family.
The Idaho Meth Project is a non-profit organization that implements large-scale, research-based campaigns and community action programs to reduce methamphetamine use in the state. Central to its integrated campaigns is Idaho.MethProject.org – a definitive source for information about meth for teens. The Idaho Meth Project is affiliated with The Partnership at Drugfree.org, a national non-profit organization working to help families solve the problem of teen substance abuse.

POCATELLO — A local man who admitted last month to violating his probation for a second time this year was sent into the retained jurisdiction program on Monday by Sixth District Judge Stephen Dunn, who expressed the desire to get the defendant the help he needed.
Quinton Moreno was originally charged with felony violation of a no-contact order in July of 2010, pleading guilty to the charge in August of 2011. He was then placed on four years of probation and given a withheld judgment.
But in February, he was in front of Dunn, admitting he had violated that probation by talking to someone he was forbidden to have contact with, using alcohol and other violations.
Dunn, taking into account the circumstances surrounding the violations, Moreno’s apparent attempts to remedy the underlying issues with several of them, and the fact that he would lose his withheld judgment because of the violations, opted to place Moreno back on probation.
Moreno lost his withheld judgment because of the probation violations and Dunn sentenced him to two years fixed and two years indeterminate, placing him back on four years probation.
Earlier this month, though, Moreno was back in front of Dunn, admitting to several new probation violations. His attorney, Doug Dykman, told Dunn that his client, now living in Fremont County, needed assistance, not prison time. He told Dunn work was being done to search out options for Moreno, including reaching out to diversionary court programs in Fremont County.
On Monday, Dykman told Dunn that Moreno was denied that diversionary court. In lieu of an option in Fremont County, Dykman suggested his client be given another opportunity on probation or asked the judge to consider a new in-patient program in Lava Hot Springs.
Prosecutors and probation officers suggested Moreno be sent into the retained jurisdiction program, one that is held in an Idaho Department of Correction setting that addresses the underlying causes of criminal behavior.
Moreno, who said he was struggling with other issues and was not a threat to go out and commit crimes, suggested being placed in the SHARE program at the Bannock County Jail.
Dunn told the defendant he needed more help than that.
“There is no doubt you need some help,” Dunn told Moreno. “I don’t think SHARE is enough.”
He then sentenced Moreno to the retained jurisdiction program.

POCATELLO — the return of Ronald Allen Schumaker, the man accused of robbing the U.S. Bank in Pocatello last week and later apprehended in Montana, could happen as soon as next week or could take several months, one official said Monday.
Capt. Jerry Hickman, of the Bannock County Sheriff’s Office, said just how quickly Schumaker returns to the Gate City depends on how his court proceedings in Montana go.
Schumaker, 60, is accused of entering the U.S. Bank, located at 855 Yellowstone Ave. in Pocatello, on the afternoon of June 17. He is alleged to have demanded money from a teller before leaving. The Pocatello Police Department, which said no weapons were reportedly observed during the incident, said Schumaker left with an undisclosed amount of money.
Schumaker was subsequently arrested on Thursday in Anaconda-Deer Lodge County, Montana, along with John Stoor, of Pocatello. Hickman said both men are being held on drug-related charges.
Bringing Schumaker to Pocatello to face a robbery charge could be as simply as his waving extradition during a hearing in Montana on Wednesday. That coupled with local prosecutor’s decision to drop charges there means the Bannock County Sheriff’s Office would have 10 days to go and retrieve Schumaker.
The hitches to that plan are multiple, however.
“If he doesn’t wave extradition, then we will have to get a governor’s warrant, which has to be signed by both (Idaho and Montana) governors,” Hickman said. “That could take up to 60 to 90 days to complete.”
Then there is the possibility that law enforcement in Montana will want to pursue local charges against Schumaker. In that case, those charges would have to be fully adjudicated before Schumaker would be allowed to return to Idaho. That could potentially take much longer than three months.
Hickman, who handles extraditions for the Bannock County Sheriff’s Office, said the majority of suspects will wave extradition, knowing they will eventually be returned to the state where charges are pending. Many wave extradition in exchange for the dismissal of locally pending charges.
“Since January, I have had to get three governor’s warrants,” Hickman said. “It’s a low percentage of them that don’t wave extradition.”
Hickman said he has heard nothing about Anaconda-Deer Lodge County law enforcement forging any deal with Schumaker in exchange for his waving extradition.
