08-19-11 Stolen coins lead to Felony charges; Daily incident report

  Warrant Arrested: Bradley T. Mosgrove, 19, Boise

  Warrant Charges: Burglary (F)

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

   The arrest warrant stems from an ongoing investigation into the theft of coins that took place in December of last year from a business on the 3200 block of west Overland. Evidence indicates the suspect was involved in the theft of several hundred dollars in coins while an employee was distracted, then selling them for cash. That investigative information was forwarded to the Ada County Prosecuting Attorney's Office and resulted in the felony warrant.
