Wires Cut By Vandals, Short Power Outage

khts_crime_genericVandals severed power lines near the intersection of Newhall Avenue and Pine Street Wednesday morning, causing temporary road closures and a brief power outage.

According to Lt. Robert Lewis of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's station, the call came in around 11:30 a.m. that lines were down in the area.

 

 

Deputies responding initially thought the wires had simply fallen into a tree, but upon closer inspection, it was determined that the lines had been deliberately cut.

The downed lines caused a temporary closure of some lanes of Newhall Avenue. Edison crews arrived quickly and fixed the problem.
