Summary:  Suppose $\Gamma$ is a totally ordered discrete abelian group, and $I$ is an ordered ideal in $\Gamma$. We show that the crossed product $A\times \Gamma^+$ by an action inflated from one $\Gamma/I$ is isomorphic to the induced algebra $\ind^{\widehat\Gamma}_{I^\bot}A \times (\Gamma/I)^+$. Using this we show how the $\wgamma$-invariant ideals in the Toeplitz algebra of $\Gamma$ are determined by the order ideals in $\Gamma$.
