Boise police seek persons of interest in bag theft

Statesman staffNovember 8, 2013 

Boise police have released photos that they hope will lead them to two persons of interest in the theft of a bag from a Valley Ride bus the afternoon of Nov. 4.

Police said a wheelchair-bound rider left a black bag on the bus when she was dropped off at West State and 9th Streets. The bag was left in the front of the bus.

After continuing west on State Street, the bus picked up two male riders. They were dropped off after a short trip in the area of Gary Lane and Bunch Court.

The bag was found in a trash can on Gary Lane, police said, but cash and identification were missing.

Police believe the men in the photos may know what happened to the bag. Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 343-COPS, log on to or text CRIMES or 274637, subject: Tip236. Tips can also be made via the Crime Stoppers Facebook Page at A citizen can remain anonymous. A reward of up to $1,000 is offered by Crime Stoppers for information leading to the arrest of criminal suspects.
