Recognize this woman? We want to ask her about string of car burglaries in Kuna

Almost a dozen people who left their cars or trucks unlocked in Kuna Wednesday night woke up to find items missing from inside — including a checkbook, credit cards, and a purse.

We’re working to identify a woman we have on tape from security footage near from where one of the burglaries occurred — and from a store later where a stolen credit card was used.

If you recognize this woman or have any info about the car burglaries, please contact Detective Crystal Able at (208) 577-3863 or by email at cable@adacounty.id.gov.

If there is one concept we here at the Ada County Sheriff’s Office would like our residents to embrace above all others, it would be: lock your stuff up.

The best way to avoid being a victim of theft is to make sure your homes and vehicles are locked all the time. We know it’s easy to forget, but it really does protect people.

People who live in neighborhoods all over Kuna, including the Luker Road/E. Sadie Creek Drive neighborhood and the Ten Mile Road/Kuna Road neighborhood in south Kuna,  had items taken from unlocked cars overnight Wednesday — including prescription sunglasses, cords, and money.

There have been numerous cases over the years of people walking through neighborhoods in the early morning hours and checking to if cars and trucks — and garage doors — are locked. If they’re unlocked, thieves then go through and steal anything of value.

So lock your cars and trucks. Lock your front doors. Lock your garage doors. Lock the side doors to your garage. Just lock it all up – you’ll likely be glad you did.
