Boise’s many trails, golf courses, and other outdoor recreational areas continue to be a target for thieves. Whenever you park your car, be sure to lock the doors and remove any personal items. Last weekend on January 21st BPD responded to multiple vehicle burglaries (see green triangles on map) in parking lots at trailheads including the 8th Street extension, Polecat, Camels Back, Hulls Gulch, and Collister.
In some cases the vehicles were unlocked, in others, the suspects broke into the vehicle to remove the items. In many cases, the victim's bank or financial transactions cards were stolen. Police and the Ada County Sheriffs are investigating and following up on leads.
We encourage you to not leave your wallet or purse behind in your vehicle. Take it with you or leave your wallet/purse at home and only take the essentials you need like a driver’s license and keys.
Report any suspicious activity immediately to police at 208-377-6790 (suspicious) or 911 (urgent).
