- Raymond Rubalcaba, 29, is charged with grand theft and possession of a controlled substance.
A Boise man is behind bars, accused of a felony in connection with the theft of medallions from Boise's Vietnam Veterans Memorial.
Earlier this week, Boise police said that six custom-made medallions, representing each of the branches of the armed forces and costing about $3,350 each, had been been pried from the granite of the recently unveiled Vietnam Memorial in the city's Veterans Memorial Park.
BPD officers received a tip who said a relative had given him a unique Marine Corps medallion, thought to be one of the stolen medallions. Soon thereafter, Boise police interviewed a male suspect and discovered five of the medallions were in his possession. Additionally, police said the suspect was in possession of three baggies containing a substance that was tested and presumed positive for meth.
Raymond Rubalcaba, 29, of Boise, was booked into the Ada County Jail on a charge of grand theft and possession of a controlled substance.
