BOISE, Idaho — Boise Police are investigating the case of a person who broke into a restaurant wearing what looks like a protective HAZMAT suit.

Police say that, shortly after 8:30 a.m. on Thursday, March 19, a suspect broke into a restaurant in the 2800 block of West Overland Road in Boise by smashing a large window. The suspect stole an undisclosed amount of money, then left the building.

A surveillance camera caught images of the suspect who was wearing what could be either a HAZMAT suit or a painter’s suit. Headgear concealed the suspect’s face. The suspect is believed to be about five-feet-ten-inches or six feet tall and weighing between 170-180 pounds. The suspect was wearing a backpack.
