January 07, 2010 WELLFLEET - Wellfleet police are investigating alleged vandalism to land survey stakes off Ocean View Drive where the town is planning a land-based wind turbine.

The removal of a handful of stakes on town land was reported to the police yesterday by land surveyor Chet Lay of Slade Associates of Wellfleet, said police chief Richard Rosenthal this morning.

Voters approved borrowing $290,000 in late October to pay for bid documents and permits for the turbine, a land survey, bird and wildlife studies and a document needed to connect the turbine to an NStar electric company substation.
