    Police say men trying to steal power lines shocked

    CONFLUENCE, Pa. - Two Somerset County men are charged with trying to steal live power lines that were still attached to a transformer and utility poles.

    Police said Kevin Lee Lytle, 27, and Daniel Jay Basinger, 24, both of Confluence, were shocked during the theft attempt on May 3 in Lower Turkeyfoot Township.

    Both were charged Wednesday, but only Basinger was well enough to attend his arraignment on the attempted theft charge..............

    LOL!

    I work for the utility that owns Penelec and I work in distribution.
    To think that somebody would even attempt to tap primary voltage is nuts.

    Ever see a transformer pole blow up or arcing lines?
    Wow!

    There are both interesting.
    The first is most likely trees contacting the conductors and the second is a transformer letting go.
