On January 31, 2024, we reported the homicide of 29-year-old Abel Saenz had occurred in the 1200 block of 3rd Avenue North in Nampa. Today, Nampa Police Detectives arrested 28-year-old Hunter Kneppe of Boise. Kneppe was booked into the Canyon County Jail and charged with 1st degree murder, robbery, destruction of evidence, criminal gang enhancement, deadly weapon enhancement and providing false information to a law enforcement officer.

“Gang and drug activity will be met with zero tolerance in Nampa,” said Chief Joe Huff. “Mr. Kneppe came to Nampa with the intention to support criminal activity and he followed through with this brutal murder. Now, because of great teamwork between members of our agency, the Caldwell Police Department, Garden City PD, Boise PD, Probation & Parole, he is sitting in jail facing 1st degree murder charges, along with a list of other charges and enhancements. Good work to everyone involved, to include the residents who stepped up to help with witness information and camera footage. When we work together, the results will benefit our entire community.”
