Warrant from 2010 lands suspect in jail on Felony charges; Daily incident report

  Warrant Arrested: Helena H. Jones, 70, 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 an incident that took place in August of 2010. Evidence indicates the suspect entered a local retail store and selected items before leaving the store without paying for them. The suspect then re-entered the store and filled a shopping cart a second time, again leaving the store without paying for the items. After a detailed investigation the suspect was identified by officers with the Retail Crimes unit. That investigative information was forwarded to the Ada County Prosecuting Attorney's Office and resulted in the felony warrant.
