On January 3, 2022 at 11:54 p.m. the Nampa Police Department dispatch received a call
reporting three males breaking into cars in a subdivision near Smith Ave. and N. Summer
Breeze St. The caller was alerted by her home camera system. When officers arrived,
they found numerous vehicles and mailboxes had been entered and they found several
items scattered in yards. Officers also located three male juveniles on foot who admitted
to the burglaries. Officers located multiple stolen items, contraband, and a firearm. All
three juveniles were booked into the Canyon County Juvenile Detention Center for auto
burglary, unlawful possession of a firearm, possession of drug paraphernalia, minor in
possession and curfew. More charges may be pending as the investigation is ongoing.
This is a good opportunity to remind everyone to make sure your valuables are removed
from your vehicle, that your vehicle is locked and that you don’t leave mail in your
mailbox for any amount of time. Please help by doing your part to protect your property.
