    When officers arrived, the victim reported that two men, acquaintances, had been let into his home by a roommate. The suspects then entered the victim's bedroom, displayed what the victim believed to be a firearm, stole property from the victim, then drove off in the victim's SUV.

    A Boise Police patrol officer in the area heard the call and spotted the stolen vehicle. Officers stopped the SUV and found the suspect, Haskell was the only occupant.
