McKinzee Kirkham, 21, of Inkom, was taken into custody Saturday and charged with Robbery and Aggravated Battery.

Sage Siler, 20, of Pocatello, was taken into custody Sunday morning and he was also charged with Robbery and Aggravated Battery.

The outpouring of information from the public since our original press release on Friday demonstrates the trust that our community has in the Chubbuck Police Department and their tips and information were critical in bringing the case to where it is this morning.

This case also demonstrates the commitment of not only the members of the Chubbuck Police Department but law enforcement in East Idaho as a whole. The cooperative effort shown by every agency involved to bring these individuals into custody is a testament to their dedication to overall public safety and they are all commended for their efforts.

There are no further outstanding persons of interest in this case, however, we still have a lot of work to get done and the case is still very much an active one. We will be unable to release any further information on this case as it moves into the prosecution phase.
