Jefferson County, OR: Power Pole Shot Out


Central Electric Cooperative received gunshot to the utility's main transmission line between Redmond and Madras.

Some 1,300 members in Jefferson County were out of power for 12 hours recently after a vandal shot the ceramic insulators on one of the power poles.

Vandalism costs Central Electric thousands of dollars each year.
