In a significant breakthrough this week, Boise Police detectives have successfully apprehended Jake Martin, the suspect involved in a recent armed robbery at a local credit union on Fairview Avenue. The 32-year-old Boise resident was taken into custody on Tuesday, February 20th, 2024, facing charges of robbery.

Following the initial incident on February 3rd, 2024, where the suspect, claiming to be armed, fled with an undisclosed amount of money from the credit union, Boise Police detectives launched an investigation to find him. The suspect's description details were released to the public, urging the community to assist in locating this armed suspect.

According to a release from the Boise Police Department, detectives, during the course of their efforts, identified Martin, and the investigation led them to a vehicle associated with him. They found even more evidence that strengthened their case. Jake Martin was arrested and has since been booked into the Ada County Jail.
