FBI investigating ‘military-style’ attack on transformers in San Jose

FBI is investigating an apparent real-world attack on San Jose power station, California, which happened earlier this year, according to Foreign Policy. Apparently, two unidentified gunmen fired “military-style” weapons at transformers at the San Jose PG&E substation in an act some see as sabotage.

SAN JOSEThe gunmen attacked the facility on the 16th April, taking down ten transformers and three transformer banks at the time.

Though the resulting outages were minor and the raid was seen as an act of vandalism, the investigators are now worried that the attack is characterised by sophistication that might signal future attacks.

Although the surveillance footage was released in an effort to track down the gunmen, no one has stepped forward.
