On Tuesday at just after midnight Boise Police Patrol officers responded to a burglary in progress at a business on the 100 block of Cole Road.  The calling party reported that they were watching live surveillance video and that the suspect was still on scene.  One officer approached the business on foot and witnessed the male suspect trying to force entry into the business through the front door using a pry bar.  The officer announced his presence and attempted to take the suspect into custody, but he resisted and attempted to get away from the officer.  After a brief struggle the man, identified as Ocheltree, was placed under arrest and charged with burglary, possession of burglary tools, and resisting arrest.

Charged:  Video Voyeurism (F), Resisting or Obstructing Officers (m)

On Tuesday at just before 5:00 a.m. Boise Police officers served an arrest warrant at a home on the 2400 block of Shoshone Street.  Officers had evidence that the suspect, identified as Gussie, was inside the residence.  However, he refused to surrender for nearly an hour before being taken into custody.  Gussie was booked into the Ada County Jail for resisting arrest and on the felony video voyeurism warrant. 

The warrant stemmed from an incident on March 14 of this year. Officers responded to a report of a lewd conduct at a West Boise recreational facility.  As officers arrived, witnesses indicated that a man had used a cell phone to video record another male in a shower stall, where he had reasonable expectation of privacy.  Officers detained the suspect, Gussie, on scene.  He refuted the claims against him.  Evidence gathered in the investigation was forwarded on to the Ada County Prosecutor’s Office and a warrant for video voyeurism was issued. 

The investigation remains ongoing and officers ask that anyone with information about the suspect or similar incidents to contact police.
