Posted on Friday, July 29, 2016 15:28 PM

The police seem mad and no doubt the friends and family of the "urban climbers" could be too.

Two people may face criminal or provincial charges for climbing electrical towers.

Saint John police were notified about this by someone at NB Power.

The police strongly urge the public to explain the seriousness of climbing electrical towers adding these incidents should be reported to police and not posted on social media.

They describe the activity as extremely dangerous adding it not only puts the lives of those doing it at risk but the lives of the first responders who may have to respond should anything go wrong.
