On January 4, 2018, Nampa Police officers responded to four vehicles stolen while they were warming up. While attempting to locate the stolen vehicles, at about noon, a Nampa Police Officer spotted a stolen 2013 Ram pickup in the 900 block of South Maple in the City of Nampa. A male was seen getting into the vehicle and sped away before officers were able to get behind the vehicle.
After a search of the area, the vehicle was seen again and officers were able to locate the vehicle stopped in the 1000 block of South Garland, which is a dead-end road. The male suspect was standing near the vehicle. He was later identified as Kasey Cheyanne Dana, 19, of Caldwell. Dana took off running after seeing the officers approach. He was apprehended after a short foot pursuit when he was unable to change direction due to the icy sidewalk and ran into the side of a police car. Dana was placed into custody without further incident.
Dana was charged with grand theft, a felony, felony possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and resisting and obstructing officers. He was booked into the Canyon County Jail on those charges.
All four vehicles taken on January 4 were recovered on the same day. The Nampa Police Department would like to remind you to not leave your vehicle unattended and unlocked while warming it up.
