Someone stole $533 worth of electricity from Cattle Festival in Abbeville

The Louisiana Cattle Festival Association received an electricity bill from the City of Abbeville it did not expect.
The bill totaled $533.
The month before, that same bill was under $2.
Francis Plaisance, who is the president the Cattle Festival, did a little investigation of how the bill came about.
Plasiance said the bill was from a electrical panel box located on a pole at the Red Barn on Rodeo Road in Abbeville. The electrical panels are used only during the trail rides when campers hook up to them.
