    Charged: Robbery

Background: Officers responded to a call of an armed robbery at the Cash Store at 8170 Overland at 10:21 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 28th. The clerk at the store reported that a man in a Halloween mask and sunglasses robbed the store at knifepoint. Despite the disguise, the clerk was able to give officers a possible suspect ID, recognizing him as possibly being a past customer. Detectives spent Thursday tracking leads as to the suspects location. Approx. 10:00 p.m., the suspect returned to his Boise home, in the area of McMullen and Cole, and was arrested by police. Detectives have recovered evidence they believe links Tudehope to the robbery, including the weapon.
