Stalking suspect apprehended in North End after Boise police search

Boise police arrested Daniel Dives in a stalking case shortly after asking for the public’s help in locating the man on Wednesday.

Officers initially began searching for Dives after they responded to an initial report of a vandalism at a residence near the intersection of Penninger Drive and Overland Road on Friday night.

As officers investigated the vandalism, they discovered the victim knew Dives, 25, of Meridian, and she claimed he had harassed and annoyed her several other times.

Over the next few days the victim informed officers that Dives had been attempting to contact her over the phone and in person, including visiting her place of work.

After police received a tip that Dives may be in the area of 23rd and State streets, they searched the area and at one point saw Dives from a distance, but he avoided officers while on foot, according to BPD.

Officers were able to locate Dives hiding in the shed, arrested him and transported him to the Ada County Jail.

He is charged on suspicion of three counts of first-degree stalking, intimidation of a state witness and two felony probation violations.

Dives has previously been convicted of stalking, according to police.
