Crime Stoppers features unsolved crimes when a detective has exhausted his leads in a case and feels that information from an anonymous source would reinvigorate his investigation.

Fugitives are wanted criminal suspects who are avoiding capture, and that makes them inherently dangerous.  Call Crime Stoppers immediately if you know of their whereabouts, but take no action to contact the suspects yourself.  You can also submit a WebTip online with the link above.

$25,000 Bronze Statue Stolen in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho (2014/03/08)

Update:  On March 8, 2014, a citizen located this stolen property abandoned in a wooded area off E Yellowstone Trail, Coeur d`Alene.

 

Sometime between Friday night on January 17th and early Saturday morning January 18th, parts of a statue depicting a 1920s-era woman on a bicycle being followed by two dogs were stolen.

 

The statue entitled “Kate” appeared to have been removed with the use of a vehicle by possibly using a rope or a chain. The matching bronze bicycle the statue was attached to, and a small bronze statue of a dog were not taken but it appeared to officers an attempt was made to steal the entire statue.

 

Coeur d’Alene Parks Director Steve Anthony estimated the artwork is worth about $25,000, though if recycled the stolen pieces would be worth much less.
