Unknown Suspects Drain Hamlet Fire Hydrants; Water Tower

The Town of Hamlet is under a boil water order until further notice.

According to John Goble, Hamlet Water Superintendent, a unknown suspect or suspect(s) drained all six fire hydrants on 500 East, which has also drained the water tower. No flooding was reported as it was contained in the fields. Goble said this is a big concern as fire protection as been hindered with the loss of water.

The incident has been turned over to the Hamlet Police Department for further investigation.
