    Additional Overnight Grand Theft Arrest; Reminder to drivers!

    Incidents of this nature can serve as reminder to all of us, as the days turn colder, the temptation to leave a vehicle running and unattended can have negative consequences. Locking a vehicle is no guarantee that a theft will not occur, but it may help deter a criminal from taking your property!

  Arrested: Kaitlyn B. Johnson, 19, Boise

    Charges: Grand Theft (F)

What happened:  Boise Police received a report of a stolen car on October 26th at approximately 6:00 a.m. from a convenience store on the 3200 block of South Vista Avenue. The victim tells police he went into the store, leaving the keys in the car and the vehicle running for a few moments. When the victim went out to get into his car, the vehicle was gone. At the time, officers were unable to locate the vehicle and entered the car as stolen.

    At approximately 2:30 p.m. yesterday a Boise Police officer on patrol in the area of Vista and Kootenai observed a vehicle that matched the description and license plate of the stolen car and conducted a traffic stop. After a detailed investigation, the suspect was booked at the Ada County Jail on the above listed charges.
