It was a cold evening in the Treasure Valley and I had been inside of a police cruiser for several hours. No, I wasn't arrested--but we were taking a friendly ride-along with the Ada County Sheriff's Office that day. Everyone was on their best behavior--not even a speeding ticket was called for! Suddenly, everything changed when a stolen vehicle was identified and we were the lead car in a high speed pursuit in Meridian, Idaho. It was absolutely crazy.

The driver was wanted and eventually, he was arrested.

Of course, with growth here in the Treasure Valley has come a real uptick in crime since the year 1999. In fact, Boise has it's very own "Most Wanted" list that you can see, below: 

Boise's Most Wanted

Yes, even here in the Treasure Valley where crime isn't so rampant, there is a most wanted list. According to the Southwest Idaho Crime Stoppers, these are the most wanted of them all. So many of these mugshots are from Ada and Canyon Counties. Do you recognize anyone?

Even now, high speed chases like the one that we got to ride-along with.

A crazy video has surfaced of a high speed chase that takes you through the streets of Boise in 1999, via a dashboard cam. There is a narrator (which is also funny to listen to) and so it must have been from some sort of televised police show at the time.

These 4 Items Are Being Rationed at Costco

You may remember that during the pandemic, certain items like rice and toilet paper were impossible to find at our local grocery stores. While we still aren't in the clear when it comes to COVID-19, we have come a long way with the development of a vaccine and more. For shoppers, however, there are some newly-announced limits to just how much of these items you are going to be allowed to buy.
