Let there be light

UMPD received a report of criminal mischief at Munson, Moosehead and Schoodic Road at 1:38 a.m. Nov. 4. Three light posts were knocked down. Due to the risk of a short circuit, it is possible the posts became electrified. The estimated cost to repair them is $5,000 each, or $15,000 total. Three similar posts were knocked down earlier this semester. There are no suspects and the matter is under investigation.

Anybody with information about the incidents is encouraged to notify UMPD at 207-581-4040 or file an anonymous report at umaine.edu/police/campus-eyes.
