   Warrant Charges:  Burglary (F), Probation Violation (m), Failure to Appear (m)

    Visual Charges: Resisting and Obstructing (m)

     The suspect was taken into custody on an outstanding felony warrant for Burglary and two misdemeanor warrants yesterday.

    The arrest warrant stems from an ongoing investigation into items stolen from the victim's home in January of this year.  Evidence indicates the suspect, who is known to the victim, had taken electronic items from the home without permission. That investigative information was forwarded to the Ada County Prosecuting Attorney's Office and resulted in the felony warrant.

    Yesterday, October 9th, Boise Police responded to a citizens report of a wanted subject at a residence on the 12000 block of West Edna. Officers confirmed the suspect had multiple warrants for his arrest including a felony warrant for burglary. As officers made contact with the residents the suspect attempted to hide inside the home. Officers located the suspect hiding in the garage. The suspect physically resisted arrest by struggling with officers. The suspect was booked at the Ada County Jail on the above listed charges.
