  • Hailey police continue to investigate a Jan. 11 break-in at Wood River High School.

Two weeks after someone used a shotgun blast to break into Wood River High School, a $2,000 reward has been offered for information, and Hailey police say they're keeping a close watch on the school.

“There’s still a person out there that committed a violent act and it still has us concerned,” Police Chief Jeff Gunter told the Idaho Mountain Express. “We’ve got two operations going on—we’ve got a security operation going on and an investigation going on.”

Gunter told the Mountain Express that the person who broke into the school remains a threat because of "the means of how the person entered."

“I’ve never seen it before,” the police chief told the Mountain Express. “It was a violent act. We are going to follow up every lead until there are no leads.

Additionally, the Blaine County School District has created a security task force to study what might be done to improve security at district schools.
