LOWVILLE — State police are looking for the suspect who shot a wind turbine at Maple Ridge Wind Farm.

Adam Renz, a spokesman with EDP Renewables North America LLC, said the turbine had to be shut off early Sunday because of oil leaks caused by “multiple shots” to the structure.

The state police and Department of Environmental Conservation were notified immediately and the minor spill was cleaned up in minutes, he said.

“We’re pretty troubled by this,” Mr. Renz said, adding that no one was hurt and the case is now in the hands of state investigators.

Troopers confirmed an ongoing investigation but no further information was available Tuesday.
