Racist fliers posted along Coeur d’Alene highway

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.
