The suspect, Jacob Smart, allegedly targeted the homes of females, resulting in the theft of personal items, including firearms, identification, debit and credit cards, and women's underwear, according to the most recent press release from the Boise Police Department regarding this case.

The burglaries, which occurred at about 5 different locations across Boise from August to October 2023, involved instances of forced entry.

Since then, there's been a nationwide extraditable warrant of $500,000 issued for his arrest.

During a search warrant in Oregon, authorities recovered multiple stolen firearms and evidence, including identifications of victims in Idaho. Smart, aware of the warrant, fled police during an attempted arrest in Oregon and is considered armed and dangerous. The suspect is 38 years old, stands at 5'11" and weighs approximately 200lbs, with brown eyes and brown hair.

Boise Police Statement on How YOU Can Help:

Harboring a known felon is against the law and could result in criminal charges."
