4 substations vandalized in Washington State, over 14,000 without power

The search continued Monday for vandals who targeted four electrical substations on Christmas Day in Pierce County, Wash., setting fire to at least one of the facilities and knocking out power to more than 14,000 utility customers, authorities said. Two of the break-ins were at utility substations in Tacoma, and two others were at a Puget Sound Energy station, according to the Pierce County Sheriff’s Office, which covers Tacoma. The vandalism came amid a series of similar sabotage incidents across the country, including several in the Northwest, and follows a bulletin issued last month by the US Department of Homeland Security warning that critical infrastructure could be among the targets of possible attacks by “lone offenders and small groups motivated by a range of ideological beliefs and/or personal grievances.”
