Police are searching for two to three men they say are turning off power to homes along Windcrest Lane in Carmel Mountain Ranch.

Residents reported their power being out around 8 p.m.

Police say the men were driving around turning off power from outdoor utility boxes.

When officers arrived, the men had left the area.
