. Joni L. Bewley, Juana Perez, and Phyllis J. Perez are being held in the Ada County Jail on felony counts of burglary and grand theft after Boise police say they caught them participating in a shoplifting spree at the Boise Towne Square Mall on Wednesday.

In Memoriam: Walgreen ORC Team Member passes. Ed Hawk, Walgreens ORC Investigator, passed away on Friday in LaPorte City, IN. Ed had recently celebrated his first-year anniversary as a Walgreens ORC Investigator after a thirty-three year law enforcement career with LaPorte County, Indiana Sheriff’s Police.
