GMP Copper Cable Thefts Under Investigation
Vermont State Police are investigating the theft of copper grounding cable taken from three Green Mountain Power substations.
Police say a total of about 45 feet of ½-inch cable was reported stolen earlier this month from two utility substations in Randolph and one in Sharon.
Officials think the cables were cut with a large set of bolt cutters.
The theft resulted in power outages in several neighborhoods in Sharon and Randolph.
