     Erin Michelsen was taken into custody on an outstanding felony warrant for Grand Theft Yesterday (September 9th)

    The arrest warrant stems from several theft incidents that took place over a period of a month, starting in June of this year. Victims tell police that the suspect, who is known to them, had stolen several personal items and pawned some of them. After a detailed investigation, Boise Police Detectives recovered several of the stolen items including jewelry. That investigative information was forwarded to the Ada County Prosecuting Attorney's Office and resulted in the felony warrant.
