Aggravated Battery warrant arrest; Daily Incident Report

   Warrant Arrested: Chase G. Cowin, 21, Boise

   Warrant Charges: Aggravated Battery (F)

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

    The arrest warrant stems from an ongoing investigation into a fight that took place at a party in a private home in February of this year. Evidence indicates the suspect struck the victim repeatedly causing damage to the victim's teeth and face. That investigative information was forwarded to the Ada County Prosecuting Attorney's Office and resulted in the felony warrant.

TITLE 18 CRIMES AND PUNISHMENTS CHAPTER 9 ASSAULT AND BATTERY 18-907. Aggravated battery defined. (1) A person commits aggravated battery who, in committing battery: (a)  Causes great bodily harm, permanent disability or permanent disfigurement;

   Arrested: Christopher L. Hansen, 42, Boise

   Charges: Burglary (F) 

   Warrant Charges: Grand Theft (F)

    Boise Police responded to a report of a theft at a retail store on the 8300 block of West Overland Road yesterday, April 5th, at approximately 7:00 a.m. Store employees tell police that they witnessed the suspect remove the security alarm device from a laptop. Security personnel confronted the suspect and detained him until officers arrived.  A search of the suspect's vehicle revealed a second laptop that officers determined had been stolen from the store the evening before. During the course of the investigation, officers determined the suspect had an active warrant for his arrest on Grand Theft charges that stem from a bank account the suspect opened and used to obtain cash and goods in Septemeber of last year. That investigative information was forwarded to the Ada County Prosecuting Attorney's Office and resulted in the felony warrant. 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.
