A woman suspected of stealing mail and packages from homes on the Boise Bench is in jail on 15 felony and misdemeanor charges.
The Boise Police Department says officers arrested 35-year-old Jennifer Hays Wednesday after investigations by Boise Police, Meridian Police, and the Ada County Sheriff's Office.
One investigation began on Dec. 19 when Boise Police were called about multiple delivery boxes being discarded at a Boise business.
Officers determined that the boxes were from stolen packages.
Security video helped police identify Hays as a suspect.
Officers pulled her over in the area of McMillan and Ten Mile roads. Police say two large sets of bolt cutters were found in her vehicle along with other evidence linking Hays to recent burglaries.
Along with several theft and burglary counts, Hays is also charged with possession of illegal drugs and drug paraphernalia.
