Detectives would like to identify and talk to a man who was seen outside the Idaho Transportation Department equipment lot off Chinden Boulevard on July 1 — around the same time people broke in and drove an ITD van and truck around inside.
Three ITD vehicles were hit and damaged, with repair costs for each exceeding $1,000.
The damage occurred sometime between 3-to-4 p.m. on Saturday, July 1. The lot is located at 8150 W. Chinden Blvd.
Detectives began their investigation July 3 after being contacted by ITD officials.
The lot is fenced in and gates are locked. It is unclear how the vandals got in. There is evidence they drove the ITD van and one of the ITD trucks around the lot at a high rate of speed and collided with another truck.
When they were done, the van and two trucks had damage to the bumpers.
A member of the public saw two vehicles going around the lot on July 1 and called Ada County dispatchers. By the time deputies arrived whoever was driving the cars was gone.
Detectives have not identified any suspects at this point but would like to talk to the man on the bike.
Anyone with information should call Ada County non-emergency dispatch at 377-6790 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
