We often talk about safety in the Treasure Valley--not as an issue but as a blessing. Living here, for the most part, offers a very peaceful and safe environment for just about anyone. It's a safe place to raise a family and a safe place to "go out" without needing to be constantly looking over your shoulder.

When crime does happen, however, it stands out like a sore thumb. We just aren't used to seeing these types of things.

Over the last several weeks, we have been talking about Boise's serial robber--one with a peculiar walk, a creepy mask, and that had a $5,000 reward out for his arrest.
