    Charges: Grand Theft by possession (F)

    Boise Police received a report of a financial transaction theft on July 15th of this year. A bank located in New York reported having made a data entry error, accidentally depositing more than $16,000 dollars in the suspects bank account on March 19th of this year. The suspect withdrew the money the next day. The victims tell police they have attempted repeatedly to contact the suspect who has been unresponsive.

            Arrested: Brett R. Pike, 33, Alpharetta GA

                Charges:  Possession of a Controlled Substance (Prescription Medications) (m)

Warrant Charges:  Manufacture of a Controlled Substance (Marijuana) (F)

     The suspect was taken into custody on an outstanding felony warrant for Delivery of a Controlled Substance early this morning (October 7th) near Idaho and Capitol streets. When officers took the suspect into custody on the warrant they discovered prescription medications in a clear plastic bag on the suspect's person, resulting in the Possession of Controlled Substance charge.

    The arrest warrant stems from an incident that took place on May 28th of last year. On that date, Boise Police Narcotics Detectives served a search warrant at a home on the 300 block of Resseguie. At the home officers discovered more than 30 marijuana plants in various stages of growth. Officers later determined the suspect had been growing the plants in the home. That investigative information was forwarded to the Ada County Prosecuting Attorney's Office and resulted in the felony warrant.
