MADRAS, OR -- Central Electric Co-Op is offering a $2500 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for shooting out a power line Sunday afternoon in the Madras area.

 

The outage, which left 1200 people without power, began just after 2:30 p.m. and lasted 11 hours. Crews discovered a 400-foot span of overhead wire severed by a gunshot, west of Highway 26 and north of Holly Lane, southeast of Madras.

 

The cost of crew time, equipment and materials will add up to several thousand dollars. Anyone with information is asked to call the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department.
