Two Arrested In Boat Theft On Lake Coeur d'Alene

COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho - The Kootenai County Sheriff's Dept. was dispatched to a residence on Coeur d'Alene Lake Drive west of Higgins Point for the theft of a boat Sunday morning. As units were responding to the area they were advised that the owner of the boat  just saw two males take his 19ft fishing boat out of his slip and start heading west on Lake Coeur d'Alene.

Kootenai County Deputies along with Idaho State Police and Coeur d'Alene Police arrived in the area. The boat was spotted about 1,000 yards south of Silver Beach Marina and it appeared that the boat was no longer under power. The Kootenai County Recreation and Safety Section responded to the area in a boat. The two males on the stolen boat were detained until the owner could identify the boat. The Kootenai County Sheriff's Dept. arrested Anthony T. Brunet age 20 of Post Falls Idaho and Aaron J. Craft age 19 of Spokane Washington. Both were charged with the theft of the boat and booked into the Kootenai County Jail. The victim stated that he had not put any gas in the boat yet so it probably ran out of gas. The victim's boat was towed back to his dock by the Kootenai County Fire and Rescue boat.

Inside of the boat deputies located other items that did not belong with the boat. These items were most likely taken from other boats in the area. If anyone is missing items from their boats that were moored along Coeur d'Alene Lake Drive please call the Kootenai County Sheriff's Dept. at 446-1300.

    SPOKANE, Wash. - This story originated as a post to KHQ, from a viewer, upset about this homeless camp below Kendall Yards. After the initial report on Facebook, I got a lot of comments -  many people were offended about how i described the camp. One person who was very vocal, was Ellie. I asked if she would meet with me - and she said yes. As upset as she is with our coverage - she welcomed the chance to make others understand that this is a conversation

He suffered severe injuries, and died several months later. Now Myer is joining Governor Inslee, praising a new DUI-E law.
