serious tampering


A reward from AT&T - (taken from their press release)

AT&T* today announced a $100,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for incidents of vandalism to the AT&T network near San Jose and San Carlos, Calif.

Following the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, AT&T's networks were declared National Critical Infrastructures in recognition of their importance to the nation's security. Anyone who tampers with, destroys or disrupts the company's network or its components is in violation of federal and state laws and AT&T will assist with any prosecution to the fullest extent of the law.

The early-morning vandalism incidents today involved cuts of fiber cables in manholes at two locations:

  • The intersection of Monterey Highway and Blossom Hill Road overpass in San Jose.
  • The intersection of Old County Road and Varian Road in San Carlos.

Restoration efforts were under way immediately.

Tips can be given to the San Jose Police Department at 408-277-4161 (ask for Detective Carlos Melo or Detective Dan Phelan);
Tips can be given to the San Carlos Police Department at 650-802-4423; and
Anonymous tip for either incident can be made to CrimeStoppers at 408-947-STOP.

Here's another press release from AT&T that I suspect might be related to the above outage (just my guess)

April 5 (2 a.m. CDT) – AT&T Inc. and Communications Workers of America (CWA) Core wireline contracts in the West expired at 11:59 p.m. PDT on Saturday, April 4. The West is the last of the Core contracts set to expire in this round of negotiations. Union-represented employees covered by these contracts will work under the expired contracts

AT&T stands ready to negotiate at any time in a continuing effort to reach an agreement.

Share a smile
