Police Investigate Burglary

IDAHO FALLS, Idaho: Idaho Falls Police are investigating a burglary that occurred at The Vapor Door last week.

According to reports, officers received a report of the burglary around 10:20 a.m. on Friday after a store employee found that an unknown person broke into the business. The burglary occurred in the early morning hours.

The unknown suspect stole merchandise and cash from the business.

Anyone with information regarding this burglary is asked to contact the IFPD at 529-1200 or Crimestoppers at 522-1983.

I.F. Man Arrested for Attempted Strangulation

IDAHO FALLS, Idaho: Idaho Falls Police arrested 39-year-old Prentice D. Mims for felony attempted strangulation following an altercation Sunday morning.

Mims of Idaho Falls was booked into the Bonneville County Jail.

According to reports, officers responded to the 400 block of H Street around 12:15 p.m. for a report of a domestic disturbance. A 41-year-old woman stated that Mims started arguing with her around 6:30 a.m.

The argument went on for several hours and when the woman attempted to get away from Mims, he grabbed her throat and began to choke her.

The woman hit Mims in the face and was able to get away.

Caribou County sheriff’s officials have identified the missing Blackfoot man they believe may have drowned at the Blackfoot Reservoir on Monday.

They say Richard Lee Scherbel, 52, was reported missing around noon on Monday, after his family discovered his partially swamped boat. Family members described the man as an experienced and knowledgable boater and fisherman who often visited the Blackfoot Reservoir, sheriff’s officials said.

Caribou County sheriff’s deputies and divers searched the reservoir until dark on Monday, and resumed the search on Tuesday with the help of divers and search and rescue personnel from Bingham and Bear Lake counties. As of 8 p.m., they hadn’t found Scherbel, officials said.

Bingham County Sheriff Craig Rowland sent a couple of divers and a boat with side-scan sonar to the area, and he said they would continue to help with the search on Wednesday.

Scherbel is only presumed drowned at this time, but if confirmed, this would be the third such incident at the Blackfoot Reservoir, located north of Soda Springs, in recent months.

POCATELLO — A vehicle that was reported stolen in Pocatello was located in a canal in Power County on Monday night, according to Idaho State police.

They found the Chevrolet Blazer in a canal near Interstate 86, east of the Pocatello Regional Airport, shortly before 7 p.m., Lt. Ismael Gonzales said.

No one was in the vehicle when it was pulled from the water, Gonzales said, adding that they also searched the area to make sure no one had been hurt in the incident, but they didn’t locate anyone.

Idaho State police are trying to determine how the vehicle ended up in the canal, and Pocatello police are investigating the vehicle theft, Gonzales said.

IDAHO FALLS, Idaho: Idaho Falls Police Officer Shawn Williams will receive the “Life-Saving” award for his actions that helped save a man’s life this past August.

Idaho Falls Police Chief Mark McBride will present the award during the Idaho Falls City Council Meeting tonight at 7:30 p.m. in council chambers.

“Officer Williams’ actions and professionalism bring great credit to himself and the Idaho Falls Police Department and are in keeping with the highest traditions of law enforcement,” Chief McBride said. “We are proud to honor and recognize Shawn with this award.”

Officer Williams was the first to arrive for a medical call on Aug. 21. He found a 69-year-old man unconscious with no pulse and not breathing.

He immediately began CPR and continued until EMS arrived and took over the patient’s care.

Acting Fire Chief Duane Nelson stated in a letter to police administration that Officer Williams’ actions “clearly prolonged the patient’s life providing him with the opportunity to recover from this event”.
