At 3:22 a.m. on Sunday, Deputies from the Ketchum Police Division of the Blaine County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to 318 Bald Mountain Road in Ketchum, Idaho for a report of a theft from a vehicle.

Upon police arrival, a witness informed the officers she saw a white male going through the jockey box of a friend’s car. When confronted, the suspect identified himself as Kevin and claimed to be a relative of the owner of the car. Upon further questioning, the suspect ran off, leaving his own vehicle parked nearby.

The owner of the vehicle, Travis A. McDaniel, age 25 of Ketchum, told police he had been notified about the break-in by his friend. McDaniel checked the contents of his vehicle and did not notice anything missing. While waiting for the police to arrive, McDaniel noticed a vehicle nearby with a bicycle inside which belongs to his neighbor.

When police ran the suspect vehicle information, it came back registered to Kevin M. Cabrito, age 19 of Hailey.

Officers left the scene of the burglary, but waited nearby for the suspect to retrieve his car. Shortly after 5:00 a.m., officers stopped the suspect vehicle near Dollar Drive in Warm Springs and identified the driver as Kevin M. Cabrito, who was subsequently arrested for burglary. An inventory of Cabrito’s vehicle produced a small quantity of suspected marijuana along with three marijuana pipes and three digital scales.

Cabrito was booked into the Blaine County Detention Center on one felony charge of burglary, and misdemeanor charges of petit theft, possession of a controlled substance and possession of paraphernalia with intent to use.
