Caught on Camera – Christmas Eve Copper Thief
Idaho Falls, ID: The investment in new camera equipment paid off when an Idaho Falls man was arrested for grand theft and cited for vandalism.
Terry L. Waid, a 49-year-old male, was arrested after he was caught stealing $1,100 worth of copper wire from the Idaho Falls Power complex at 140 S. Capital around 11 p.m. on Christmas Eve. He also caused $200 in damage to a fence to gain entry into the complex.
Waid was caught the day after the new high-tech camera equipment was installed at Idaho Falls Power’s main facility. “Copper theft is a serious problem in the electric industry. Not only does it cost our customers money and put our system reliability in jeopardy, but it can result in death if energized equipment is the target,” states Jackie Flowers, general manager at Idaho Falls Power.
The public is encouraged to report any suspicious activity or unmarked vehicles at electric facilities.

Impaired Driving Mobilization Starts Thursday
IDAHO FALLS, Idaho: Don’t let the consequences of impaired driving ruin your holiday
celebrations. Instead get a designated driver.
The Idaho Falls Police Department is teaming up with the Idaho Transportation
Department and other law enforcement agencies during the Holiday Impaired Driving
Mobilization. Law enforcement will conduct education campaigns and high‐visibility
enforcement patrols statewide searching for drunk and impaired drivers Nov. 27 – Jan. 4.
The IFPD received $2,500 in funding from ITD’s Office of Highway Safety to help pay for
additional enforcement to support this important safety campaign.
“Our agency is committed to helping keep our roadways safe,” IFPD Chief Mark McBride
said. “We’re glad to be able to provide extra patrols during the holidays to help combat
impaired driving and help people have a safe and happy celebration.”
In 2013, impaired driving contributed to 1,425 crashes on Idaho’s highways and caused 96
fatalities statewide. Just more than 45 percent of all fatality crashes statewide were the
result of an impaired driving crash.
ITD and the IFPD offer these tips for safe driving:
• If you plan on consuming alcohol, designate a sober driver before leaving and give that
person your keys.
• Call a taxi, sober friend or family member to get you home safely if you’re impaired.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(208) 612-8655 605 N. Capital Ave., Idaho Falls, ID 83402 (208) 589-3091
• Promptly report drunk drivers to law enforcement.
• Wear your seatbelt while in your car or use a helmet and protective gear when on a
motorcycle. These are defenses against an impaired driver.
• If you know someone who is about to drive while impaired, take his or her keys and help
make other safe travel arrangements.
