Benito Baeza

SANDPOINT, Idaho (AP) — An Idaho State Police trooper has been suspended without pay as authorities investigate accusations he engaged in criminal activity in two northern Idaho counties in 2013.

The agency in a statement on Thursday says 48-year-old Daniel Howard is suspended pending the outcome of criminal charges.

The agency placed the 19-year veteran on paid leave in December and without pay in April after Kootenai County authorities announced charges.

Howard faces charges of grand theft, petit theft, and possession of an untagged deer involving acts authorities say occurred in Kootenai County.

He’s also charged with forgery, title fraud and grand theft for actions authorities say occurred in Bonner County.

Idaho State Police issued the statement after the Bonner County Daily Bee  sought information about Howard’s employment status.
