   Boise Police, working with retail loss prevention employees witnessed two suspects conceal merchandise at a store on the 400 block of North Milwaukee yesterday, March 14th, at approximately 1:30 p.m. The suspects left the store without paying for the merchandise. As store employees attempted to detain the suspects in the parking lot, the suspects entered a vehicle and attempted to leave. At one point, multiple witnesses tell officers the driver of the vehicle, Mylisha Terry, attempted to back over one of the employees, who was forced to jump out of the way or be run over. Boise Police officers blocked the vehicle in and the two suspects were taken into custody. A search of the vehicle revealed more than $800.00 in stolen merchandise taken from multiple retail stores. Officers also recovered a glass pipe containing a small amount of Meth. Officers believe the suspects entered the stores with the intent to commit the thefts, resulting in the burglary charges. 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.
