CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WTVD) -- The FBI Charlotte Field Office announced Friday that the agency is offering rewards of up to $25,000 for information on the gunfire attack at an electrical substation in Randolph County, NC.
That's in addition to the $25,000 reward for information on the Moore County grids attack in early December.
The Randolph County attack happened on January 17 at an EnergyUnited substation located in Thomasville.
Investigators said a person(s) fired gunshots at the substation. The shooting didn't cause an outage to customers like the one on December 3, 2022, in Moore County.
In the Moore County attack, two separate Duke Energy grids were attacked with gunfire causing 45,000 customers to lose electricity for nearly a week; it also caused hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage.
The FBI says their investigation doesn't show that the shootings in Moore or Randolph counties are connected. The agency is working with Moore County and Randolph County law enforcement in the investigation.
They're asking the public to call with information to help catch the culprits.
