Police seek help to find suspects in Boise vehicle burglary (w/video)

Statesman staffJuly 9, 2013 

The Ada County Sheriff's Office said a Jeep Wrangler parked in the driveway of a South Boise home was broken into last month, and now authorities are providing information to the public that may help identify who is responsible.

The sheriff's office said credit cards and climbing gear were stolen from the vehicle on West Stirrup Street in the neighborhood of Maple Grove/Lake Hazel roads. The climbing gear included shoes, carabineers and a harness. A money clip, a debit card and a driver's license also were taken.

According to the victim, the crime occurred sometime after 8 p.m. on June 23. He told deputies he found out about the burglary after getting a call from his credit union around lunchtime June 24 asking him about suspicious purchases made on his credit card overnight.

Surveillance video from Boise area stores (see below) shows two suspects trying to use one of the stolen credit cards between 2:30 to 3:30 a.m. on June 24. Video also shows them trying to use one of the cards to buy several hundred dollars worth of items from a Walmart. The card was rejected.

If you recognize the men in the video or have other information that might help deputies, call Crime Stoppers at 343-2677 or submit a tip at www.boiseareacrimestoppers.org.
