Hayden, ID - On December 18, 2018, at approximately 2:10 a.m., Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to the area of N. Emerald Dr and N. Amethyst Dr for a report of a vehicle burglary. A homeowner called in stating they just caught two individuals breaking into their car and the individuals fled on foot.
Deputies responded to the area and located a male who fled on foot and started jumping fences in backyards in the area. A second male was also seen running from the area and into a residence in the area. The owner of that residence said the unknown male did not belong in his home. Deputies searched the house and found Cole N. Curtis hiding in the garage and he was taken into custody.
A Coeur D’Alene Police Officer overheard the radio traffic and recognized Curtis’ name from previous contacts and said he is associated with Wyatt L. Taylor who lives in the same area. Deputies attempted contact at Taylor’s house but he was not home, however, the residents called back a short time later saying Taylor returned home. Taylor was contacted and admitted to the burglary and was taken into custody as well.
Taylor was arrested for two counts of Burglary
and has been arrested 12 times before for various
probation violations, drug charges and property crimes.
Cole was arrested for two counts of Burglary,
Unlawful Entry and Obstructing. He has been
arrested 3 times before for alcohol and drug charges.
