REDDING, Calif. - The Asphalt Cowboys have released the second set of clues to identify the Lone Strangers during Redding Rodeo Week.

The clues come after a bank hold-up by the Lone Strangers, who are two local residents in disguise. 

The Lone Strangers pull off the heist in broad daylight. 

The Asphalt Cowboys turn to the public for help in identifying the Lone Strangers. 

Clues are given each day until someone identifies the bandits and locates the loot.

The second set of clues - Wednesday, May 15

The clue to identifying the lone stranger: 

They fired up a getaway car,

boss and rider were on a mission;

The posse must stake their badges,

and put them out of commission

-

The clue to finding the hidden loot: 

To the hills they could not go,

nor on a mountain peak;

But in the low plains they found,

solace near one big creek.

-

The first set of clues - Tuesday, May 14

Sure as luck would have it,

they’ve hit our great town once more;

It’s plains as day the Cowboys,

are flustered to the core.

 

The Lone Stranger first went over,

the Sidekick then went under;

Back in the middle they met,

from the bank to stash their plunder.

-

To Identify the Lone Strangers call 530-223-1188.

If found, follow the instructions that come with the loot to return it.
