Grand theft warrant arrest; Daily incident report

   Warrant Arrested: Christian M. Odell, 35, Homedale

   Warrant Charges:  Grand Theft (F)

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

    The arrest warrant stems from an ongoing investigation into several gold collector coins stolen from a Boise residence in June of this year. Evidence indicates the suspect, who is known to the victim, stole the coins from the victim's home and sold them to a third party. The coins are valued at more than $5,000.00. 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 24 THEFT 18-2403. Theft. (1) A person steals property and commits theft when, with intent to deprive another of property or to appropriate the same to himself or to a third person, he wrongfully takes, obtains or withholds such property from an owner thereof.
