Date of Crime
Crime Stoppers needs your help in solving the following crime:
Sometime between the afternoon of Thursday April 19th and the early morning of Monday April 23rd, an unknown person or persons broke into a BC Hydro site and stole some wire.
The unknown suspect or suspects broke into a BC Hydro substation located on Turtle Main Road, near Great Central Lake Road. Entry was gained to the property by breaking the bolt on a gate accessing the compound. Once inside the compound several copper grounding wires were cut which varied in length from 2 to 4 feet. Although the copper wire itself is not all that valuable, the labour involved in repairing the damaged wire and associated damages will be in the several thousands of dollars.
Given the location, the suspect or suspects would have had to drive to the location.
