    Warrant Charges: Burglary (F)

The suspect was taken into custody on an outstanding felony warrant for Receiving Stolen Property yesterday.

    The arrest warrant stems from an ongoing investigation into a burglary that took place on September 7th of this year. Evidence indicates the suspect was involved in stealing several cases of beer by grabbing the items and running out of the store. Officers later learned the identity of the suspect and that investigative information, forwarded to the Ada County Prosecuting Attorney's Office resulted in the felony warrant.
