Thieves disrupt telephone and Internet service to hundreds in Warren today



Published: Fri, April 27, 2012 @ 11:31 p.m.

WARREN

The theft of two 60-foot cables strung on utility poles behind 1509 Parkman Road NW disrupted telephone and Internet service to up to 500 businesses and residents in the northwest quadrant of the city for much of today.

A Century Link representative contacted Warren Police Department at 11:10 a.m. about the theft, saying it had occurred sometime overnight.

Its location is near Drexel Avenue Northwest.

The cost to replace the cables, which were 11⁄2- to 2-inches in diameter will be about $10,000, officials estimate.

Because of the cost of the cable, the theft was entered into the report as felony theft, and

because of the effect on customers, it was also entered in as a disruption of public services.

Ohio Edison reported the theft of 70 feet of braided ground wire from a substation on Mahoning Avenue Northwest on March 6.

If you take away someone's internet it's liable to be the end of you.

It is time for warrent to call in the National Guard and declare Martial law. Curfew will solve this problem, otherwise it will only get worse as summer sets in.
