  • Cassidy S. Mylander, 21, of Boise, was arrested Tuesday, Sept. 10 on charges of burglary with explosives in connection with a restaurant break-in.


It's been quite a week already for restaurants and thieves in Boise.

Boise police went to an apartment near Ann Morrison Park around 6 a.m. today and found Cassidy S. Mylander, 21, of Boise, after he broke a door window to get into the residence. Officers found more inside: professional-grade knives and other kitchen equipment, raw meat and liquor bottles topped with dispenser nozzles commonly found in a bar.

Officers went to the downtown restaurant where the suspect had recently worked, only to find the kitchen and bar area ransacked. Police did not confirm which restaurant, but did state in a news release that Mylander is behind bars at the Ada County Jail, facing a felony charge of burglary with explosives.

In other restaurant thievery news, officers were called to a restaurant near West State and North 36th streets around 2 p.m. Sept. 9 because a man walked into the rear portion of the business (an area only open to employees), took a bank deposit bag and left. A news release from the BPD said the bag had an undisclosed amount of cash inside.

After he left the store, a restaurant employee realized the theft.
