Why You Should Be Sleeping At 2 a.m.
A young Boise woman is in jail on accusations that she engaged in some exceptionally poor decision-making, done at an hour when few good decisions are made. Amber Young, 20, of Boise faces charges of kidnapping after police say she engaged in the following:
1. Around 2 a.m., she made a visit to a house she was moving out of--police haven't determined if she was getting kicked out--on the 1900 block of Ancestor Avenue, to pack up her belongings.
2. She brought a date to her house-ousting--a total faux pas. Even worse, the man was one of those "wears a ski mask to strangers' houses and carries a gun" types, both qualities any good relationship book will say to avoid.
3. She enabled, in police spokesperson Lynn Hightower's words, the man to threaten several of the house's inhabitants and fire off a shot at one point.
Police were called at approximately 2:18 a.m., at which point the male suspect ran out the back door and Young was arrested. On Tuesday, Boise Police issued a warrant for their suspected kidnapper, Joshua A. Ward, 28, of Emmett, who is wanted on charges of aggravated assault, kidnapping and using a firearm in a felony.
