A Boise man is behind bars after police say he burglarized more than a dozen unlocked cars last month, stealing guns and other valuables left inside.

Chancellor Threatt, 31, is charged with 23 felony counts of burglary and grand theft, as well as 10 misdemeanor counts of petit theft. 

According to the Ada County Sheriff's Office, the car burglaries happened between April 4 and April 22 in the Linder/Deer Flat roads neighborhood. Threatt is accused of breaking into one home during that time period as well. 

Threatt stole a rifle, shotgun and handgun from the unlocked vehicles, as well as credit cards, computer equipment, wallets, tools, backpacks, binoculars, and other possessions, according to investigators. Deputies have recovered some of the stolen property, but have been unable to track down any of the three guns. 

A warrant was issued for Threatt's arrest after deputies developed evidence pointing to him as a suspect. He was arrested by the ACSO ACTION team early that afternoon. 

Threatt is currently held in the jail on a $200,000 bond, and is due back in court June 22. Burglary carries a possible ten-year prison sentence, while grand theft is punishable by up to 14 years in prison.
