The two male occupants of the vehicle were identified as Justin L. Cuevas, 21, and Benigno Rocha Jr., 21, both of Nampa. Located in the vehicle were numerous items that had been stolen. Most of the property was returned to the owners at the scene of the traffic stop.
Cuevas and Rocha were charged with three counts of burglary. Cuevas was also charged with Possession of Marijuana.
