Source of ‘strange’ flier known

-A +A
A strange flier circulating around Downtown Auburn is tied to a Placer County judge. Judge Richard Couzens said he could not offer much comment, but confirmed he knows the source of a flier with the picture of a young boy on it with the words “Plese Help” written above it. “The person involved has appeared on my mental health calendar over a number years,” Couzens said Friday. He said he could not comment further. Couzens confirmed that the phone number on the flier was an old line for Dept. 9 in the DeWitt Center in Auburn. He said the number was disconnected when the department moved. -Jenifer Gee
