Racist fliers posted along Coeur d’Alene highway

By The Spokesman-Review

The Coeur d’Alene Police are looking for the men suspected of plastering telephone poles along U.S. Highway 95 with Aryan fliers on Tuesday.

The police took a report Tuesday that two men were putting up fliers on poles along Highway 95 between Neider and Bosanko avenues around 3 p.m.

“This crime falls under city ordinance … and is a misdemeanor,” said police Sgt. Christie Wood in an email. She said the police received solid information from witnesses with vehicle and suspect descriptions, along with a license plate number. “The report will be forwarded to detectives and we will investigate it.”

One of the men was described as a white man with a slender build in his 30s or 40s. He had long brown hair and was wearing a khaki-colored hat on backwards. He had no shirt on and very short jeans shorts with cargo-style pockets. The vehicle was described as a tan Ford Ranger pick-up. Police also have a license plate number but are not releasing it at this time, Wood said.
