    Boise police officers search for home burglary suspects


    Tuesday, January 5th, 2010

    BOISE — Boise police officers are asking for assistance in locating suspects after a home burglary was apparently interrupted by a homeowner and shots were fired Monday afternoon

    Officials said they took a call from a homeowner on Chickadee Drive about 3:10 p.m. The man said he returned home, parked in his garage, and entered his kitchen to find a man standing on the other side of the counter with a bag stuffed with items including jewelry and computer equipment.
    The suspect also had what appeared to be the homeowner's handgun, officials said in a press release.

    When the resident confronted the stranger, he told police that the suspect raised the gun and fired two shots. Neither hit the homeowner and the gun appeared to jam, after which the suspect left the gun and bag behind and ran out the back door.

    As the victim watched the suspect run off, he said he saw a second suspect running through the backyard.

    The resident called police, who searched the area but did not find the suspects. The first suspect is described as a light skinned male in his mid 20s, between about 5 foot-10-inches and 5-foot-11-inches tall. He was wearing a blue hoodie with gray stripes on the sleeves and dark pants and had a thin build. The second suspect, only seen while running away, was wearing a dark hoodie.

    After investigation, it appeared to officials that the suspects forced open a back window to gain entry to the home.

    Anyone with any information on the crime northwest of Overland and Five Mile roads is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 343-COPS, log onto www.343cops.com, or text CRIMES or 274637, subject: Tip236.
