BOISE -- A 41-year-old Caldwell man is accused of drunkenly stealing jewelry from a store near the Boise Towne Square Mall on Monday.

Steven R. Oldham is charged with felony grand theft, felony burglary, resisting arrest, and trespassing.

Boise police say store employees saw Oldham conceal several jewelry items at the retail counter of a store near 400 North Milwaukee Road and then leave.

Oldham didn't make it very far.

Police say a retail crimes officer confronted him outside the store, and the two briefly struggled.

After searching Oldham, police turned up roughly $2,000 in stolen jewelry. Officers say Oldham appeared obviously intoxicated.

What's more, it appears that Oldham had been recently trespassed from the property.

The 41-year-old was booked into the Ada County Jail where he remains as of Tuesday morning.
