Huron County OPP officers, are investigating another incident of vandalism at a wind turbine under construction in Ashfield-Colborne-Wawanosh.

Sometime between 10:00 p.m. Saturday, and 10:00 a.m. today, someone forced entry into the locked control base of a wind turbine located on Cransford Line and caused extensive damage, estimated to be in thousands of dollars, to the main circuit board.

Just before the Thanksgiving weekend an excavator sustained thousands of dollars in damage at a site on Bridge Road in Huron East.

Two excavators parked at a site on Glen’s Hill Road in Ashfield Colborne Wawanosh were vandalized last month and a light-stand generator was ruined at the Cransford Line wind turbine site.

Police note, the bulk of these mischiefs are taking place late at night or during the early morning hours. If you see something suspicious such as a suspicious vehicle or person(s) on or in the vicinity of a wind turbine site please call police immediately with as much information as possible. Your timely piece of information may help investigators solve these crimes.

The Huron OPP Crime Unit encourages anyone with information about this crime to call the Huron OPP Detachment at 1-888-310-1122 or at (519) 524-8314 to speak with an investigator. Alternatively, should you wish to remain anonymous, you may call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), where you may be eligible to receive a cash reward of up to $2,000.
