POCATELLO — Two children were placed into protective custody after their mother was arrested on four outstanding failure to appear warrants and drug charges on Friday, Dec. 18.

Pocatello Police report that Monday, Dec. 21, officers responded to the home of Amanda Lorraine Trammell, 34, on Foothill Boulevard. The father of one of her children called police for a civil standby, where officers are requested to be present at the exchange of children.

When they found out about the warrants, they arrested Trammell. They said they also found drugs in plain sight in her home. Two children were present.

Police continued to search the home and found more drugs and drug paraphernalia, including pipes and .5 grams of meth. On Dec. 21, Trammell was charged with felony drug manufacturing and delivering a controlled substance, as police needed time to search the home and determine what drugs belong to Trammell and other people who lived in the house.

“The residence was filthy and unfit for children,” said police spokeswomen Dianne Brush. “The children were deemed to be in imminent danger and removed.”

The children were placed in the custody of child protective services and Trammell will also face two misdemeanor counts of injury to a child.

Trammell, 34, was booked into the Bannock County Jail, where she was still incarcerated Monday around noon.
