The Dillon Industrial, Moccasin Bluff, and Little Rock substations were vandalized. A spokesman said before all of the repairs were complete from the first incident, the Dillon Industrial substation was vandalized again with copper stolen. At all four crime scenes, fences were cut, ground wires were cut and left dangerously exposed, equipment was damaged, and copper wire was stolen.
