Idaho Probation and Parole agents reported back on April 3, 2009, that a 42-year-old male Hidden Springs resident had gone AWOL, taking a $2,000 alcohol monitor with him.
The suspect was slapped with the monitor as part of his probation on separate, unrelated driving-under-the-influence charges. But between Dec. 2, 2008--the start of our suspect's mandated monitoring--and the April call to Boise cops, probation agents had heard nary a whisper from the man.
Results of the BPD investigation were forwarded to county prosecutors, who issued an arrest warrant. And on Oct. 14, police located the man--and his liquor equipment--and arrested him, slapping on an additional felony grand theft charge.
