Robbers tie up disabled woman

Two people seeking prescription drugs tied up a Bonner County woman in her home early today.

Cynthia White was asleep on her couch when the robbers entered, forced her into her wheelchair and tied her to it about 3:50 a.m. in the Cedar View Estates area south of Oldtown on Highway 41.

In a press release, sheriff’s Lt. Doug Harris said the robbers searched the house for prescription drugs and did not injure White, who has physical disabilities.

The robbers untied the woman before leaving. A K-9 from the U.S. Border Patrol joined deputies in an attempt to follow the robbers.

The trail led to a nearby road before it was lost. Harris said the robbers apparently left in a vehicle from there.

Anyone with information about the case should call Bonner County Sheriff’s investigators at (208) 263-8417, extension 3051, or the dispatch center at (208) 265-5525.
