(WABASH) - Indiana Conservation Officers are investigating significant damage done to a Heartland REMC substation during the evening of November 25th.

The substation is located near the Red Bridge Marina on Mississinewa Reservoir Property. The substation lost power at that time.

REMC personnel discovered a bullet hole in the substation transformer that penetrated the radiator. Other bullet damage was apparent on the outside of the transformer, but did not penetrate the outside of it. REMC personnel did find spent rifle cartridges nearby which ICO's will examine as possible evidence.

Damages are estimated to be $400,000 or more. REMC is offering a reward of $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the responsible person(s).

Anyone having observed suspicious activity in this area or has information relating to this incident should call Indiana Conservation Officers Central Dispatch at (812) 837-9536
