Police are offering a cash reward for information that leads to an arrest of the person or persons who created a dangerous condition on a Sag Harbor area nature trail where a teenager on an all-terrain vehicle was seriously injured earlier this month.

“An unknown person or people are tying hunter green parachute cords across the trails in an attempt to deter dirt bikes and ATV riders,” according to an alert released Wednesday morning by Suffolk County Crime Stoppers on behalf of the Southampton Town police. The cords are difficult to see, police said, “and may cause serious physical injury or death.”
