Bloomington police officers were dispatched to the Vectren Operating Center at 205 S. Madison St. at 7:46 a.m. Friday.
According to Sgt. David Alley, surveillance video provided by the Evansville-based energy company shows a man driving one of the vehicles out of Vectren's gated lot before crashing it into a nearby tree. The video then shows the man walking back onto the lot, getting into another vehicle and crashing it into a fence. The man reportedly fled on foot toward the B-Line Trail.
Alley described the suspect in the video as wearing a dark shirt with an emblem on it.
"What I know at the moment is quite simply that this is now an open investigation with local, Bloomington law enforcement," Natalie Hedde, a Vectren spokesperson, said. "The individual responsible has yet to be identified."
