Nampa Police Arrest Man for Child Enticement – Concerned There are Other Victims

Press Release Kunz N23-35140

On July 19, 2023, Nampa Police Detectives served child enticement and disturbing the peace warrants on Jacob Lorenzo Kunz, 33 years old, of Meridian, at his place of work in Nampa. The warrants stem from Kunz driving near female pedestrians, both juveniles and an adult, in Nampa and offering them money to get into his vehicle or for them to show him their breasts. Kunz did not have physical contact with any of the known victims and none of them complied with his requests. After the victim’s refusal, Kunz drove away in each of the incidents, and the victims contacted the police. 


In each of the Nampa occurrences, Kunz was driving a white 2013 Ford F150 pick up with Idaho license plates. 


Because of the on-going pattern of behavior of Kunz, we fear there are other victims in our community, and possibly those communities around us. If you experienced a similar incident, we ask that you call law enforcement. 

Nampa Dispatch: 208-465-2257

Canyon County Sheriff’s Dispatch: 208-454-7531 (Caldwell, Parma, Wilder, Greenleaf, Middleton, Melba, etc.) 

Ada County Sheriff’s Dispatch: 208-377-6790 (all of Ada County) 


“I want to commend the victims in these instances for taking swift action to get away from this potentially dangerous individual, and for calling us to help locate him,” said Interim Chief Curt Shankel. “We fear there are other victims, and we ask that they also bravely come forward and talk to a trusted adult or call law enforcement directly.”
