Wind turbine damage continues in Huron County  

Credit:  By Kirk Dickson on October 23, 2014 | blackburnnews.com ~~

Huron County OPP are investigating yet another incidence of vandalism at a wind turbine construction site.

Police were notified Wednesday by a construction supervisor that equipment parked at a wind turbine site on Manley Line in Huron East had been tampered with.

Investigators believe the damage occurred sometime between the late evening hours on October 16 and the early morning hours on October 17.

Police say those responsible trespassed onto the site and put debris into the hydraulic lines of a Spider Plow boring machine, causing thousands of dollar damage to the specialized equipment used for burying cables and high voltage lines.

The vandals also attempted to damage other machines at the site by draining oil from the equipment.

A pre-inspection of the equipment by employees noticed the machines had been tampered with thus sparing the equipment from further damage.

In recent weeks, police have investigated several incidents of vandalism at wind turbine construction sites across Huron County.

The bulk of these mischief’s 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.
