    Boise Police arrested two men following a report of a robbery at a west Boise home last night. Detectives have reason to believe the exchange of illegal substances may have been a factor in this case. Boise POlice were called to a report of a robbery that occurred in a detached garage of a home in West Boise last night, February 8th, at approximately 7:00 p.m. The victim tells police that the suspects, who are known to him, were in the garage with him, when the suspects began to choke the victim and took his wallet that contained cash. The two suspects then left the home and the victim called police. Officers soon located the two suspects walking a short distance away. After further investigation, the suspects were transported to the Ada County Jail and booked on the above listed charges.
