In odd crime news over the weekend, the Boise Police responded to a report of a burglary in progress at 3 a.m. Saturday, to find 27-year-old Boisean Anthony J. Marsh there, naked except for his shoes, standing next to a broken glass door in front of a business on South Shoshone Street, bleeding from cuts. The suspect was behaving erratically and wouldn't respond to officers' commands, and instead attempted to jump through the broken window. “At one point, officers were forced to deploy a taser to take the suspect into custody to avoid further injury,” the BPD reports. Replacement of the safety glass door was estimated to cost more than $1,000; the suspect was also determined to have broken into a nearby laundromat. He was booked on charges of malicious injury to property and resisting and obstructing an officer. No word on where his clothes were; perhaps being washed at the laundromat?
