Teen gives false name to police after Nampa standoff

One of three people arrested after an afternoon standoff in Nampa Wednesday gave a false name to police and got an additional criminal charge in return.

The 18-year-old, who identified herself as Jade Van Dyke, is actually Ashley N. Eudy, Nampa police announced Thursday. Eudy, whose identity was verified by fingerprints, is now charged with false personation in addition to grand theft, resisting or obstructing officers, petit theft and possession of drugs and paraphernalia.

Nampa police report that Eudy has been arrested for other crimes with the false name, and investigators were assigned to clear up any legal issues the name's rightful holder may face because of Eudy’s actions.

In Wednesday's incident, Eudy and Juan Lopez, 28, were arrested for grand theft by possession in connection with a stolen vehicle the two were spotted in. The two are accused of fleeing from police in that vehicle, then hiding in a North Nampa house and refusing to emerge for several hours. Eudy, Lopez and Alejandro Vega, 31, also were charged with obstructing after the standoff ended.
