    Arrested: Glen L. Cloyd, 53, Boise

    Charges: Burglary (F)

    Boise Police were called to investigate an ongoing theft situation at a local retail store on the 600 block of Milwaukee street yesterday (May 18th) at approximately 10:16 p.m. Loss prevention employees tell police they observed the suspect, later identified as Glen Cloyd, enter the store with an old sales receipt. The suspect then found a similar item and returned it to the store for cash. Boise Police believe the suspect entered the store with the intent of stealing, resulting in the felony burglary charge. 

    The Boise Police Organized Retail Crime Unit has developed a positive, productive working relationship with loss prevention agents from many local retail stores, large and small, local and national chains. The goal of the BPD Organized Retail Crime Unit is to work with retailers to reduce theft and fraud, crimes that can impact consumer prices.
