Jonathon Hunt

On Friday, January 4, 2020, at approximately 1:40 p.m, a deputy from the Ketchum Police Division of the Blaine County Sheriff’s Office responded a theft report at the Brass Ranch River Run Store, located at the Sun Valley Ski Resort in Ketchum, Idaho.

After investigation and review of surveillance footage, the deputy was able to determine that Jonathan Daniel Hunt, age 44 of Minneapolis, Minnesota, had picked up the victim’s lost wallet, that had been dropped near the ski racks, used the debit card to purchase an item at the store, and kept the cash he found. 

Hunt was arrested and charged with Felony Possession of a Financial Transaction Card, I.C. 18-3125(2), Felony Possession of Fraudulently Obtained Goods, I.C. 18-3127, Felony Fraudulent Use of a Financial Transaction Card, I.C. 18-3124(1), and Misdemeanor Petit Theft, I.C. 18-2403(2)(c). Hunt was located wearing the item he purchased. 

Hunt will be arraigned on the three felonies and one misdemeanor in Blaine County Magistrate Court at 1:30 p.m. today.
