The FBI is offering a $20,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of whoever was responsible for intentionally downing an Entergy high-voltage transmission line in Holland Bottoms on Highway 321 east of Cabot in Lonoke County.

The FBI said someone attached a cable to the framework of the 100-foot tower and placed the cable across the nearby Union Pacific Railroad tracks in an attempt to use a moving train to bring down the tower. A portion of the tower and tower dropped without harm to anyone early Wednesday. Said an FBI release:

We believe that someone may have seen a person(s) or vehicle(s) in the area during the early morning hours of August 21, 2013, or may have heard someone removing bolts from the base of the tower, as this act would have created substantial noise. We believe the person(s) responsible is familiar with the Holland Bottoms area. This person(s) may also possess above-average knowledge or skill in electrical matters.

We are asking for anyone who may have any information that might be related to this matter to contact us at FBI’s Little Rock Field Office at (501) 221-9100 or We emphasize that regardless of how insignificant you think your information might be, or whether you think we already are aware of it, we want to hear your information. Sometimes even the most minor detail can assist investigators and public safety officials. We encourage anyone who may have photographs or video of this area to share that information with us.
