PARIS – Somebody has been taking potshots at the outhouse at the Norway/Paris Fish and Game range, and cash is being offered to find the culprit.

During the past two weeks, more than 10 holes have been made in the outhouse walls, Leon Truman, a range association member said Thursday.

“When the bullet goes through the outhouse, it is headed toward the road,” Truman said. “It is very dangerous.”

If the vandalism doesn’t stop, Truman said the range will be shut down to the public.

Police Chief David Verrier said police have stepped up patrols by the range, which is off Route 117.

The outhouse is 30 to 40 yards from the road.

The outhouse owner, G.A. Downing Co. Inc. of Minot, is offering an award, but Truman did not know the amount.

Last spring, after an outhouse at the sand lot in Waterford was burned, Buster Downing offered $100 for any information leading to the arrest and conviction of a culprit. Payment is contingent on a conviction, Beth Ducharme of G.A. Downing said Thursday.

Another $100 is being offered for information on the Paris case, Ducharme said.
