A Mountain Home man arrested Thursday is accused of robbing an Icon Credit Union location at 910 Orchard St. in early October.

Boise police say Eric Weigle, 45, entered the credit union just before noon and indicated he had a weapon, but didn’t actually display one. He reportedly fled on foot after taking an undisclosed amount of cash.

Boise police later released a description of the suspect and asked for the public’s help finding him.

BPD received multiple tips. Working with the U.S. Marshals Task Force, the Ada County ACTION Team and Mountain Home police officers, they found Weigle and arrested him without incident at his home in the 700 block of West 8th Street South in Mountain Home.

Anyone with additional information on the case is urged to call Ada County dispatch at 208-377-6790 or Crime Stoppers at 208-343-COPS.
