Suspect sought for power pole damage

RCMP are concerned the individual may be injured

Quesnel RCMP are seeking information regarding a damaged power pole in the 4000 block of Schemenaur Road, which is off the Barkerville Highway.

On April 17, BC Hydro located the damaged pole and transformers near the railway lines. It is alleged that a suspect used what appears to be a power saw to cut the pole down, which caused disruption in power to the immediate area.

The RCMP were alerted, and in a statement said they are concerned the individual involved sustained injuries as a result of the pole falling and the subsequent electrical flash, which can cause significant burns.

Costs to restore power and repair the damaged pole and equipment are estimated in excess of $30,000.

Quesnel RCMP are asking the public for any information they may have about this incident to call the Detachment at 250-992-9211 or BC Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
