Sabotage of Electric Lines in Arkansas

Forbes reports on someone who pulled down two power poles in Arkansas that left 10,000 without power.

It appears that the culprit was able to commandeer the local utility’s (or owner of the transmission system) equipment to pull down the utility poles.
 
The power lines targeted in the attacks, which can be found on Google Maps, appear to link a high-voltage transmission line with a switching station or substation sited at 161 Billy Ln in Jacksonville, Arkansas. 
The implication appears to be that the culprit not only knew where to find the equipment he needed to cause a power outage, but he also know how to use that equipment well enough to pull down two utility poles.
