BOISE -- A 28-year-old Boise man is charged with misdemeanor child enticement after police say he tried to lure a young teen girl into a home using drugs and alcohol.

Steven V. Carlson was arrested just before 11 p.m. Sunday.

Officers say the victim reported Carlson's attempts to entice her with illegal drugs and alcohol, and the subsequent investigation resulted in Carlson's arrest. Police say say the alleged crime happened near North Hartman Street and Fairview Avenue on May 13th.

Under Idaho state law, a person may be charged with enticing of children if the victim is under 16 years of age.

Carlson was booked into the Ada County Jail late Sunday night, and is currently out. If convicted, he faces up to 6 months in jail and/or a fine of $1,000.
