    The arrest warrant stems from an ongoing investigation into the theft of goods from a grocery store on the 4700 block of North Eagle Road starting in June of this year. Evidence indicates the suspect entered the store on three occasions, selected merchandise and then left without paying. That investigative information was forwarded to the Ada County Prosecuting Attorney's Office and resulted in the felony warrant.
