A male suspect was taken into custody Monday after Boise Police responded to a call of alleged fraud at a downtown Boise bank.

Law enforcement were summoned to the Wells Fargo Bank at Eighth and Idaho streets June 29. That's where a bank employee told Boise Police and members of the FBI about potential suspicious activity. The suspect was still on the premises and was taken into custody. Police said the investigation is ongoing.

40-year-old Christopher Miller of San Leandro, Calif., was booked into the Ada County Jail on a felony count of grand theft and a felony count of misappropriation of personal identifying information. He was slated to be arraigned Tuesday, June 30.

A short time later, the Boise Police SWAT team moved into a Boise neighborhood after police tried to serve a warrant on a man who law enforcement said had a history of carrying weapons. 

When police arrived on the scene at Fairmeadow Drive near Courtney Drive, the suspect reportedly led law enforcement on a foot chase through several back yards. 

Police ended up blocking off the area until the suspect was taken into custody.

33-year-old Curtis Manees was booked into the Ada County Jail on three felony counts: a felony warrant from the State of Idaho, possession of a controlled substance and unlawful possession of a weapon by a convicted felon. Manees was also slated to be arraigned Tuesday, June 30.
