Alex Follette, lead cashier at Second Chance Building Material Center on W. Grove Street, said the man who showed up locked in a set of toy handcuffs Friday afternoon appeared to be in his mid-30s.
Other than that, Follette didn't know much about him. The man said his wife had handcuffed him to a bed, they lost the key to the cuff, and she cut the bed frame with a reciprocating saw to free him.
An Ada County dispatcher said Boise Police officers' cuff keys didn't work, so they called the Boise Fire Department. In the end, a firefighter with a pair of bolt cutters did the trick.
