    The suspect was taken into custody on an outstanding felony warrant for Grand Theft yesterday.

   The arrest warrant stems from an ongoing investigation into stolen jewelry. Evidence indicates the suspect was involved in the theft of a watch valued at more than $7,000.00 from a private residence in Southeast Boise in April of this year.

 Arrested: Bernard C. Ackerman, 58, Boise

  Charges:2 counts of Burglary (F)

  Boise Police responded to a report of a theft at a retail store on the 1500 block of West State yesterday, May 17th, at approximately 4:00 p.m. Store employees tell police that they witnessed the suspect conceal a bottle of wine under a jacket and attempted to leave the store without paying for it. Employees detained the suspect until officers arrived. Evidence indicates the suspect is the same person who entered the store earlier that morning and stole another bottle of wine, resulting in the 2nd burglary charge. Officers believe the suspect entered the store on both occasions with the intent to commit the thefts, resulting in the burglary charges. The suspect was transported to the Ada County Jail and booked on the above listed charges.

  The Boise Police Department has developed a positive, productive working relationship with loss prevention agents from many local retail stores, large and small, local and national chains. The goal is to work with retailers to reduce theft and fraud, crimes that can impact consumer prices.
