Two men on dirt bikes are suspected of damaging a car and truck with shotgun blasts in the Foresthill area Thursday afternoon.
A man was hiking near Foresthill Road, about 3 1/2 miles from Deadwood Road, when he encountered two men in their early 30s riding dirt bikes, according to a Placer County Sheriff’s Office Facebook post. The dirt bikes were described as early 2000 KTM bikes, orange and white, four-stroke, with enduro gas tanks.
The hiker reported that the men were wearing orange-and-white riding gear with white riding boots. A blue milk crate was strapped to one of the dirt bikes, and a white ice chest was strapped to the back of the other. Both men were reportedly carrying shotguns on slings, one with a composite stock and one with a wood stock.
When the hiker returned to his truck and car, he found both damaged from shotgun blasts, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
