   Warrant Arrested: Christine E. Cantwell, 30, Boise

   Warrant Charges: Issuing Checks Without Funds (F)

     The suspect was taken into custody on an outstanding felony warrant for Issuing Checks Without Funds yesterday.

    The arrest warrant stems from an ongoing investigation into several bad checks passed at local merchants starting in May of this year. Evidence indicates the suspect was involved in in passing personal checks at the victim businesses knowing that the account had been closed. Boise Police Financial Crimes detectives forwarded that investigative information to the Ada County Prosecuting Attorney's Office and resulted in the felony warrant.
