Vandalism causes AT&T outages

Danville cut wires similar to San Jose incident

by Geoff Gillette

Danville police are looking for suspects in three separate incidents of vandalism involving AT&T junction boxes in town.

Sgt. Dan Hoffman said the first incident occurred April 2 at the box near the intersection of Greenbrook Drive and Paraiso Drive. The second occurrence was April 3 at the intersection of Town and Country Drive and San Ramon Valley Boulevard. The third was April 5 on Camino Tassajara and Ramon Road. In all three cases, the vandalism occurred at night, between the hours of 9:30 p.m. and 8 a.m.

Hoffman said that in all three incidents, wires providing television and high speed Internet were cut but no phone lines were severed. The outages lasted an hour or two and affected a few hundred business and residential customers.
