Potentially deadly prank being pulled in Shoshone County; Deputies searching for suspects

Shoshone County Sheriff Mitch Alexander said in a press release on Thursday that deputies found three boys who have admitted to stretching plastic wrap across I-90 last month. 


The boys, who are minors and have not been identified, told deputies they heard about a similar prank and wanted to recreate and modify it. The boys attend school in Kellogg and said they did not intend to hurt anyone or damage any property. 

The three juveniles however told deputies they were not involved in the second incident, which took place on March 22, 2015.

Alexander said paperwork petitioning the three boys into court will be sent to the Shoshone County Prosecutor, along with a restitution request for the damage done to one of the cars that struck the plastic wrap.
