CRIME:  MISCHIEF TO POWER LINE EQUIPMENT

DATE:    January 28, 2016

RCMP FILE:  2016-4618

Kelowna RCMP were contacted by a FortisBC rep who reported a Fortis power line insulator damaged ¾ of a mile north of Lebanon Lake in the Chute Lake Road and Mountainside Drive area.  The insulator failed and crews discovered it was broken and had what appeared to be an old bullet hole in it.  Crews believe the old damage may have corroded and caused the insulator to eventually break.  FortisBC is asking for the public’s help in reporting incidents of vandalism to the electrical system, particularly in the back country; vandalism puts the public and crews at risk, weakens the electrical system and creates unnecessary costs for customers.
