PUD Seeks Whoever Damaged Power Pole

Northern Wasco County PUD is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever was responsible for damage to a power pole in The Dalles.  The PUD says the pole at the intersection of East 11th and Dry Hollow was damaged at about 2:30 p.m. Saturday afternoon when it was struck by an early 2000 model grey four-by-four pickup truck with a homemade looking tool box with stickers all over it in the bed of the vehicle.  Witnesses could not get a license plate number due to damage to the vehicle.  The driver is described as a blond haired male in his late 20’s.  Anyone with information is asked to call The Dalles Police Department at 541-296-2613.
