SAN ANTONIO -- Three CPS Energy employees have been fired after being found with what could be stolen utility poles.(from KSAT-12)
The investigation into the case started when a concerned citizen followed a speeding CPS Energy truck to a rural East Bexar County road.
Thomas Robles said he was suspicious of the truck's driver.
"They ended up going into this road behind me where they went to the back and I just gave them a little time and went back and checked and that's where they were unloading the poles like they were in a hurry," said Robles.
Robles took photographs and said wooden utility poles were being used as fence posts on the property.
Robles said he saw about 10 new poles on the truck and suspected that the wire being used in the fencing is from CPS Energy as well.
And didn't you think your neighbor would notice your fence -- your nice, new, sturdy fence -- and wonder where you got your materials so cheap? And so different from any other kind of fence material?
