OPP looking into mischief at Lakeshore wind turbines

Ontario Provincial Police are investigating at least two incidents of damage to lakeshore wind turbines.

The first incident was reported to police on April 4, but the damage may have occurred over the past month. The transformer of the wind turbine is damaged.

The second was reported on Wednesday. When employees arrived on site, they found damage to the turbine base.

“The consequences of damaging a wind turbine can go well beyond the financial impact,” said OPP Constable Steven Duguay. “Individuals are at risk of electrocution, fire, explosion, injury and death.”

Police are asking those who live and work in the area where the wind turbines are located to be on the lookout for suspicious activity. If you see anything unusual or suspicious, get as much information as you can and contact the police.

OPP reminds people that 911 is available for emergencies and ongoing crimes. For non-emergency calls, dial 1-888-310-1122.anonymous tips can submit Call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) to be eligible for a cash award.
