    Boise Police responded to a report of an ongoing fight at a residence near State Street and west Pierce Park early Saturday morning (November 13th) just after midnight. Officers could hear yelling as they approached and saw blood on the front door that was partially open. As officers entered the home they saw the victim, an adult relative of the suspect, laying on the ground passed out in a pool of blood. The suspect, who had blood on him, began to approach the officers in an aggressive stance. Officers ordered the suspect to sit down repeatedly. The suspect refused to comply with officers commands and was physically taken into custody by officers who could smell alcohol on the suspects person. The victim was transported to a local hospital with what appeared at the time to be non life threatening injuries. Officers have evidence that the suspect had been kicking and striking the victim in the head on the floor resulting in several lacerations and damage to his teeth and ear. The suspect was transported to the Ada County Jail and booked on the above listed charges.

   Boise Police responded to a report of a theft at a retail store on the 10000 block of Overland Friday (November 12th) at approximately 2:30 p.m. Store employees tell police that the suspects took merchandise off the shelves and attempted to return them at a customer service counter for money. The suspects left the store with the merchandise after being denied a cash return. The suspects then entered a retail store on the 5200 block of West Franklin and attempted to do the same thing, taking items from the shelf and attempting to return them to the store. The suspects were again denied the transaction. The suspects left the store with the merchandise and waiting officers arrested them shortly after. The stolen merchandise was recovered from the suspects vehicle. Officers believe the suspects entered the stores with the intent to commit the thefts resulting in the burglary and petit theft charges. The suspects were transported to the Ada County Jail and booked on the above listed charges.

   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.
