Travis McDonald, 31, of Bountiful, Utah, is charged with felony counts of grand theft and controlled substance violation, and misdemeanor counts of false personation and carrying a concealed weapon without a license.
Two suspects are behind bars today after Boise police, responding to a report of credit card theft from a Utah woman, caught up with the suspects at a hotel on the 2200 block of West Airport Way at approximately 10:40 p.m. Nov. 13.
There, officers uncovered evidence that Kristie Nuneviller, 30, of Salt Lake City, had recently tried to use the credit and identification cards reported stolen by the victim. They also discovered the victim's forged signature.
Officers then canvassed the area, ultimately identifying Nuneviller with a man, Travis McDonald, 31, of Bountiful, Utah, as they were removing luggage from an automobile. When approached by police, Nuneviller provided false identifying information and was discovered to be in possession of a small amount of a substance later identified as methamphetamine.
McDonald, likewise provided false identifying information, and when police performed a pat search, he was found to be in possession of a loaded .22 caliber pistol for which he did not have a permit. Officers also found McDonald to be in possession of a small amount of methamphetamine.
Further investigation uncovered evidence of multiple credit and identification cards, none of which belonged to McDonald.
Detectives later discovered that McDonald is wanted in connection with multiple crimes involving fraud in the Salt Lake City area, and that the automobile used by the suspects had been reported stolen in Utah.
Both suspects were arrested and are booked in the Ada County Jail.
Kristie Nuneviller, 30, of Salt Lake City, is charged with felony counts of forgery, fraudulent use of a financial transaction card and controlled substance violation, and a misdemeanor count of false personation.
