(ORLEANS) - The Orange County REMC Board of Directors has authorized paying a reward of $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for an act of vandalism at the REMC headquarters building, located on Highway 337, a mile east of Orleans.

On Sunday, someone used a large caliber firearm to shoot a window near the main entrance of the REMC headquarters.

Cooperative management considers this a very serious situation, as it could have resulted in the death or injury of an Orange County REMC member or employee.

"REMC will not tolerate senseless and dangerous acts of vandalism such as this," says REMC CEO Dan Arnold. "It is not uncommon for cooperative employees or custodial contractors to be in the headquarters building outside normal business hours. Also, REMC members and civic organizations frequently use the building's community/training room for evening and weekend functions."

REMC management will continue to work with law enforcement to find those responsible

If you have any information about the incident, please contact the Orleans Police Department at 812-865-2222.
