BRANCH, Ark. -- A neighbor who lives along South Hopkins Road in Branch called 911 Friday night when a man fell from a power pole near her home. Franklin County deputies said Roy Achterberg may have been trying to steal electricity from the power pole to run to his nearby home.
Achterberg placed a metal ladder on the pole and tried to siphon the electricity with jumper cables.
