Tower saboteur: I was only pointing out flaws
By Barney Lerten
Crews last Thursday had found bolts removed from three of four legs of a
high-voltage power line tower south of Sacramento. It was the week's
second case of sabotage in that area and the 10th such incident along the
West Coast in 10 days, as the FBI intensified its search for Poulin.
The FBI's Sacramento Division last month obtained a federal arrest warrant
charging Poulin with damaging or attempting to damage an energy facility,
said Portland FBI spokeswoman Beth Anne Steele. That carries a potential
20-year prison term, if convicted.
