   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 a ring that had been stolen from a business on the 500 block of West Park Center in September of last year. Evidence indicates the suspect was involved in the theft of the ring from a fellow employee. Officers recovered the stolen ring, valued at more than $1,000.00. That investigative information was forwarded to the Ada County Prosecuting Attorney's Office and resulted in the felony warrant.
