06-15-11 Lewd Conduct Warrant arrest; Daily incident report

   Warrant Arrested: Kevin R. Simmons, 36, Horseshoe Bend

  Warrant Charges: Lewd Conduct with a Minor (F)

    The suspect was taken into custody on an outstanding felony warrant for Lewd Conduct with a Minor yesterday.

   The warrant comes as a result of a detailed investigation into allegations of inappropriate conduct that reportedly took place in March of this year. The victim tells detectives the conduct took place in a Boise home. The suspect is known to the victim. Detectives have no evidence that indicates other victims are involved at this time. That investigative information was forwarded to the Ada County Prosecuting Attorney's Office and resulted in the felony warrant. Further inquires into this case should be directed to the Ada County Prosecuting Attorneys Office.

   Boise Police responded to a report of a fraud taking place at a retail store on the 8100 block of West Fairview  yesterday, June 14th, at approximately 3:00 p.m. Store employees and retail crimes investigators identified two men, one inside the store involved in a retail return scheme as the other waited in a nearby vehicle. The suspect used false identification to obtain gift cards from the store. Officers waited for the suspects to leave the store before conducting a traffic stop. A search of the vehicle revealed evidence of multiple fraudulent activities and a small amount of residue on a spoon that tested positive for cocaine. 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. The goal of the BPD Organized Retail Crime Unit is to work with retailers to reduce theft and fraud, crimes that can impact consumer prices.
