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

    The arrest warrant stems from an ongoing investigation into funds taken from a local legal firm while the suspect was an employee. Boise Police received the report in July of this year. Evidence indicates the suspect was involved in obtaining money from the business under fraudulent means in excess of $3,000.00 earlier this year.  That investigative information was forwarded to the Ada County Prosecuting Attorney's Office and resulted in the felony warrant.
