The Ada County Sheriff's Office say they've arrested a Boise couple who allegedly stole nearly $1 million worth of items from an Eagle home.
The pair allegedly stole guns, furniture, appliances, precious metals and a 2002 Mercedes while the homeowners were out of town between March 17 and April 4.
Gilberto Garza Jr., 32, and Jessica Lynn Engelhardt, 24, were arrested Thursday afternoon, May 16, at a Tamarack Drive home. They face felony burglary and grand theft charges.
Some of the stolen items were recovered during the arrest, including a washer and dryer, three guns, a couch, televisions, power tools and thousands of dollars in silver coins.
Almost every room in the home had been ransacked, deputies said. The break-in was reported April 4 when a family member went to the home. Neighbors said they had seen a U-Haul in the driveway, but did not report it to law enforcement at the time.
The thieves cut through a locked metal safe to steal 10 guns, deputies said. They also took clothes, dishes and pictures off the walls.
Engelhardt knew the homeowner, deputies said, and may have been to the home prior to the heist. She and Garza were identified as suspects shortly after the crime was discovered.
The total value of the stolen items totaled $955,000. Many of the belongings were not recovered. Deputies ask anyone with information or who has purchased anything from Engelwood or Garza to contact the Ada County Sheriffs Office.
A preliminary hearing is set for May 31. Idaho code allows up to 10 years in prison for burglary, and up to 14 years for grand theft.
