KCSO Press Release
The Kootenai County Sheriff's Office Handled the following notable calls for 2/16/21
Day Shift handled the following notable calls:
A Deputy checked out on a suspicious vehicle at the east bound Huetter Rest area where he made contact with a male subject. The male was arrested for his outstanding warrants from Bonner County.
Postmaster from the post office in Hayden called in to report a suspicious person in front of the building harassing patrons as they entered and exited the building. The post master requested the male be trespassed from the property however when we went to look for him he was nowhere to be found.
Units responded to the area of HWY 95 near mile marker 428 (mica grade) for a “Chicken trying to cross the road”. Several motorists called saying the chicken was a hazard as drivers were trying to avoid the bird and the road conditions were bad due to the snow. Units arrived on scene and developed a rescue to capture the chicken and bring it to safety. On their first approach the bird was able to give them the slip and walk under a patrol car so a different plan had to be drawn up to handle that situation. Ultimately the chicken was able to be captured. Because everyone wants to know “Why does the chicken cross the road”, the Deputies asked however the chicken did not give an answer. We may never know why the chicken crosses the road.
There were several slide offs and minor property damage accidents that Deputies responded to.
Evening Shift handled the following notable calls:
Harrison Community Ambulance, East Side Fire and Rescue and Deputies along with the KCSO Dive team responded to Harlow Point after it was reported that a female fell through the ice and could not get out. Multiple attempts from citizens on scene made attempts to help the female get out of the water, but they were unsuccessful. By the time the Dive Team was able to arrive the female was no longer responsive. They removed her from the water and lifesaving efforts were attempted, however, were unsuccessful. 21-07267
