Reward Offered For Happy Jack Spiked Rebar Information
The Coconino County National Forest is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the conviction of whoever is hiding spiked rebar on roads in the Happy Jack area near Flagstaff.
Spokesman Brady Smith said they want to stop the practice before someone is hurt, or even killed.
“The rebar had been flattened and then sharpened to a point and then they had put it in the road and exposed that point to where it would purposely slash these tires," Smith said.
Smith said the sharpened rebar is a hazard for both people and animals. He said it’s possible somebody is putting it on the roads to restrict others from using a public resource in hopes of keeping it for themselves.
