BOISE -- Just days after Boise police removed six children from a home with filthy and dangerous conditions and their parents were arrested, there's another case to report.

Garden City police say they were tipped off to a similar situation on East 44th Street.

Jacquelynn Smith and Wesley Marcum, both 25, were arrested after police got information that three children, all under the age of 4, were living in an "extremely dirty" home.
