"It is this type of citizen assistance and
involvement that can lead to a swift and effective
apprehension". says Boise Police Lt. Doug
Schoenborn. "Thankfully, citizens were alert and notified
police quickly, providing excellent descriptions of the suspects,
which led to their quick capture"
Boise Police officers took two suspects in custody
after a late night graffiti spree in the North End of Boise.
Officers responded to calls from citizens on 32nd Street,
Taft Street, Good Street, and Sunset Park. Citizens reported seeing
two individuals spray painting cars, street signs and fences late
Saturday night, December 18th, at approximately 11:30 p.m.
Boise Police had previously received complaints about
on-going graffiti activity in the area and deployed undercover
officers, who were already patrolling neighborhoods in search of
the suspects. The man and woman were located in the neighborhood
still carrying the spray cans. At this time officers have
identified approximately 10 different pieces of property with
damage. Due to the large amount of victims and monetary damage of
the graffiti spree, the crime is a felony.
