Burglar Caught In The Act, Yells “OH SHIT!” & Runs as Homeowner Awakens: Dwight Boshers

Dwight Boshers was arrested again Friday, this time for violation of probation, and possession of meth. We had originally queued his story for publication back in September, but a very speedy court case resulted in a plea where the charge would be deferred and eligible to be expunged, if he stayed out of trouble. Since that didn’t happen, and he now has new charges, we’ll now publish them all. First the original charge, where he fails as a robber:

on 09/09/17, on the 200 block of White Bridge Road, MNPD responded to a burglary call. The victim/homeowner states he was sleeping in his bedroom when a young white mail with long blonde hair, kicked in his front door. The homeowner jumped out of bed and confronted the defendant at the front door, and in response the defendant yelled “OH, SHIT” and ran away from the scene. Some time later, officers observed a male matching the defendant’s description and detained him for questioning. A show up was conducted, and he was positively identified. The suspect’s boot prints also were a match to the pattern on the door that was kicked in. A few days later, in a guilty/judgement deferred/no conviction plea, the defendant was sentenced to a year of probation, where everything would disappear if he got no new charges in the next 12 months.

Fast forward to Friday night, 10/13/17. MNPD responds to a call of a while male walking in back yards carrying a bag. The suspect was identified as Boshers and when his ID was ran, returned with a confirmed warrant. During the search incident to arrest, a small amount of methamphetamine was found on him. Boshers claimed to have ‘found’ the meth on the ground near a construction site.

Latest MNPD Affidavit: 

I was dispatched to the location for a report of a male, white, with dreds, carrying a bag, and walking in peoples’ back yards. I arrived in the area and saw a male matching the description. I stopped him and asked for his identification and what he was doing. He did admit to walking in back yards. He gave me his information and he returned with a warrant. I confirmed the warrant with our Warrant’s Division and took him into custody. During a search incident to arrest, I located a small baggie of white powder in his pocket. I read him his Miranda Rights and he stated he understood. He believed the substance was meth but was not sure since he found it on the ground near a construction site. I tested the substance and it returned positive for meth.

Boshers has a $7,000 bond and court dates on both Monday & Tuesday for review and probation.
