05-02-08 Update: Arrests in Strong Arm Robbery
Boise, May 2, 2008 - Boise Police Detectives have charged a married couple in connection with a strong arm robbery that occurred at a Boise laundromat last October.
Detectives say these arrests are possible thanks, in part, to the victim who was a very good witness and able to give officers solid suspect descriptions. That not only helped officers identify the actual suspects, but helped them to eliminate others. Thanks also, to the Idaho State Police Crime Lab that processed forensic evidence which also led to suspect identification.
Arrested: Bridgette Hagadorn-Curtright, 21, Meridian
Charge: Aiding & Abetting Robbery (F)
Suspect: Nicolas B. Curtright, 24, Meridian
Charge: Robbery (F)
Background: Late the night of October 20th, 2007, a man and woman walked into a laundromat off Overland Rd.,strong armed the lone clerk into a back room, then stole money from the business and left. A few days later, with cooperation of the clerk, Boise Police were able to release composite sketches of the two suspects (see release dated 10-24-07 at www.boisepolice.org). Several citizen tips came in, as detectives also processed other evidence from the scene.
Recently, forensic and other evidence led Boise Police detectives to positively identify and locate the suspects:
- Suspect Bridgette Hagadorn-Curtright was booked into the Ada County Jail on the BPD charges yesterday, Thursday, May 1st.
- Suspect Nicolas B. Curtright is currently serving time on a probation violation in Beaver County, Utah. Upon his release from Utah, slated for May 13th, Utah officials will serve the Boise arrest warrant and Curtright will be brought back to Ada County.
