The Bonneville County Sheriffs Office is looking for the person or persons responsible for shooting at wind turbines above Ammon causing thousands in damage.
Sergeant Jeff Edwards says BP Wind Energy reported that one of their wind turbines were shot twice sometime in the last two weeks. The bullets he says hit the top of the turbines near the fins and damaged hoses, wiring, and other equipment costing more than five thousand in damage.
British Petroleum Wind Energy says they noticed the damage on December 22nd and believe the shooting occurred a few days before that. Vandalism is a felony crime punishable by five years in prison and a fine of $1,000 plus restitution for repairs.
