Man suspected of several high speed chases busted in motel
GARDEN CITY, Idaho (KBOI) – Authorities have arrested a fugitive and his female acquaintance at a Garden City Motel earlier this morning following a brief standoff.

Anthony Polisso, of Caldwell and Brandi-Lee Skinner, of Nampa, surrendered to Ada county Sheriff MERTO SWAT Team at 4:40 a.m.

Polisso, a documented gang-member from Canyon County, has been wanted by authorities after three high-speed pursuits in the past weeks in the Canyon County area, officials say.

The suspected vehicle was located near West 34th and Chinden Street, while Polisso and Skinner were located in a motel room.

“To ensure the safety and security of the public, Orchard Street and two blocks of Chinden Boulevard were cordoned off until the pair was taken into custody," said Chief James Bensley.
