Time Warner Cable Offers Reward for Copper Thieves

Time Warner Cable is offering a $10,000.00 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person, or persons, responsible for vandalizing the company's equipment on June 19th and July 24th located at the 1-35 underpass near Dallas. Damage to fiber optic cable lines resulted when thieves attempted to steal the fiber's conduit, which appears similar to copper. The incident resulted in over 16,000 customers losing temporary access to phone, Internet and television. Previous damage suffered by the company resulted in the loss of service to over 45,000 subscribers and thousands of dollars in damaged equipment.
