Background and the latest updates

A Coeur d’Alene taco stand that employees said has been picketed recently by white supremacists was vandalized last week.

The owner of Tacos Los Panchos, 2102 N. Fourth St., discovered the vandalism when the trailer opened for business on Feb. 11, said Sgt. Christie Wood, a Coeur d’Alene Police Department spokeswoman. When the employees left, they said the trailer was secure and nothing had been damaged, Wood said.

In the morning, they noticed that someone cut the power, propane and heater lines to the trailer — a total of $1,500 worth of damage, Wood said. The owner, Ignacio Sanabria, told police that people who are “KKK members” have protested outside his stand recently, telling him to go back to his own country, Wood said.

Wood said malicious injury to property is a misdemeanor. Police have no suspects.
