Secret Witness Seeks Culprit(s) in Trail Attacks

Secret Witness of Kootenai County is offering a cash reward for information leading to the arrest of the suspect(s) involved in stringing a cord across a popular riding, walking trail in Rathdrum. At 10:17 a.m. Wednesday, May 2, a male motorcyclist was riding on the Burlington Northern access road behind Lakeland Jr. High School. He was injured when he struck the cord and crashed. At 5 p.m. Tuesday, May 8, the same motorcyclist suffered serious injury on the same trail when he hit a low-lying, barbed-wire fence that had been strung across the trail. Officers examined the scene of the crash and determined someone deliberately strung the barb wire across the trail in order to cause an accident. Anyone with information on these two incidents is asked to call Secret Witness of Kootenai County at 667-2111. Callers are asked to provide a code name or number and do not have to provide their own name to be eligible for a cash reward.
