Coles Co. (ECWd) –
Criminal destruction of property has occurred on multiple properties connected to the Solar Farm project on the east side of Coles County and bordering western Edgar County. This damage includes the destruction of a cement wall on an old dairy barn, the destruction of barn doors, and numerous fence posts rammed into by a vehicle. Below are a few photos of the damage.
It’s evident by the damage this was an intentional act. While we do not have photos of the Solar Farm fence damage, we have seen both videos and pictures that reflect areas of fence and fence poles that were rammed and ruined.
Anyone having any information regarding this damage is asked to contact the Coles County Sheriff’s office at (217) 348-7332.
