One Of The Major Internet Service Providers Offers Reward For Vandalism Suspects

Following the cutting of fiber optic cables in San Jose, one of the major internet service providers has decided to offer a sizeable reward for any information leading to the capture of those responsible. The cable-cutting occurred in two locations earlier this week, and rendered residents of a nearby city unable to call 911. AT&T is offering a $250,000 reward for what they are calling well-planned and coordinated attacks.

In addition to the cutting of fiber optic cable, shorts were also fired at the electric transformers utilized by PG&E, which damaged at least five transformers and spilled cooling chemicals. Investigators are saying that the two acts of vandalism are related. Interestingly, a similar incident occurred four years ago, although it is unclear whether any suspects were identified.
