OAKLAND, Maine, Feb. 20, 2009
(AP) Old telephone poles are being swiped right out of the ground in central Maine.
According to FairPoint Communications, about 35 poles have been cut and stolen. The thefts in the town of Oakland began last fall and stopped in the early winter but have resumed as snowbanks have retreated.
The poles had no wires attached to them and were to be removed later. They had been trimmed to 12 feet tall, and were left behind when the company put in replacement poles next to them.
FairPoint supervisor Simon Thorne said the pressure-treated poles aren’t good for burning because they contain preservatives. He speculated someone might be taking them to use for framework.

Wow this craigslist ad really shows whats for sale, behind everything else lol (maybe good reason for it). The stuff hanging from the trees is a nice touch. Also check out the reason for the “not so good” quality of the picture by the seller in the later part of the ad. Cant wait to go pick it up and meet the sellers : )
