BOISE – Two Boise men have been arrested in connection with a snatch-and-run beer theft in Boise Tuesday night.

Officers were called around 7 p.m. to a retail store on the 10000 block of West Overland Road.

Store employees say a man entered the store, grabbed two 30 packs of Budweiser beer and then ran out without paying. He jumped into a waiting vehicle, which sped off.

Police were able to track down the suspect, Steven Gomez, 29, at a home on the 300 block of White Cloud Drive. When officers arrived on scene, they found Steven and Eugene Gomez, 34, drinking beer in the garage.

Eugene Gomez had an outstanding arrest warrant out of Nevada. He is charged with being a fugitive to Idaho.

Steven Gomez is charged with felony burglary.

Both men were booked into the Ada County Jail.
