01-05-12 UPDATE: Robbery Suspect in Custody
UPDATE: Boise, Jan 5, 2012 - Boise Police detectives are
returning home from Kamiah after the suspect in yesterday's armed
robbery of a Northwest Boise convenience store was arrested there
on an Ada County robbery warrant this afternoon.
Detectives say identification and arrest
of the suspect was thanks to several citizen tips and assistance of
officers with the Kamiah Police Department following the release of
photos from the robbery.
The suspect is 17 years old and a
resident of Kamiah in north-central Idaho. Because the suspect is a
juvenile, his name is not being released by Boise Police at this
time. He is in custody in Kamiah and is expected to be extradited
to Ada County on the felony robbery charge.
"Our officers were able to act very
quickly thanks to the quick response we received from both citizens
and other law enforcement agencies. That cooperation really made
this arrest and is greatly appreciated," said Sgt. Mark Barnett of
the Boise Police Department Criminal Investigations Division.
