Police arrested a 21-year-old Kuna man caught breaking into snow cone stand early Friday morning – only hours after he bonded out of the Ada County Jail on a different felony burglary charge.
In addition to the break-in at the snow cone stand in the Linder/Deer Flat roads area Friday morning, Shayne A. Angwin is a suspect in break-ins at the Kuna baseball field snack stand on 2nd Street, a Kuna-area dog grooming business, and the City of Kuna maintenance yard on 4th Street earlier this week.
Angwin is currently charged with two counts of felony burglary in connection with the break-ins and more charges are possible. He is also charged with resisting arrest in connection with Friday morning’s incident.
Kuna Police began the latest investigation shortly before 1:30 a.m. Friday after getting a call from someone who saw a man go into the snow cone stand on N. Doe Avenue through a window.
When a Kuna Police officer arrived at the snow cone stand moments later, he saw a man — later identified as Angwin — jump out of the building and run away.
That officer chased after Angwin, who refused commands to stop. The short foot chase ended moments later after the officer had to climb over a fence. This time, when the officer told the Angwin to stop, he did.
That officer found flavor packs from the snow cone machine and a word-search puzzle that said “I love sno cones” in Angwin’s pockets.
Officers arrested Angwin and booked him into the Ada County Jail — a place Angwin bonded out of less than 12 hours before.
Kuna Police first arrested and charged Angwin with burglary late Wednesday afternoon.
Officers were investigating the break-ins of three different places — the snack stand at the baseball field, grooming business, and municipal lot — all reported to police on Wednesday morning. Thieves took money from the snack stand and grooming businesses and damaged both buildings.
Kuna police found evidence at the baseball field that linked the break-in at snack stand to two teenagers boys (ages 16 and 17) found a short time later at the skate park on 2nd Street. As the case progressed, officers developed evidence that Angwin orchestrated and did the break-ins at all three places.
Officers tracked down Angwin by Wednesday afternoon and arrested him a short time later after talking to him about the break-ins.
Officers booked Angwin into the jail late Wednesday afternoon. Angwin left jail around 4 p.m. Thursday after posting $5,000 bond. Less than 12 hours later, he was back in the jail on a new burglary charge.
Angwin’s is currently being held in the Ada County Jail on a $25,000 bond. A preliminary hearing in connection for the first arrest is set for July 2.
The teenage boys have not yet been charged. Police have been in contact with their parents and charges are still possible as the case is still under investigation.
