Verizon to offer $10,000 Reward to stop Copper Cable Thefts in Southern California

NEWBURY PARK, Calif. (FNP) – Verizon announced a $10,000 reward to the person who can provide information that leads to the arrest and prosecution of copper cable thieves.  There has been several thefts of copper wires and cables throughout Southern California.  Verizon said that their copper cable has been stolen from nine locations, which have added up to thousands of dollars in losses and damages.

The company reports they have lost thousands of feet of copper cable and the theft has impacted their business.  They want the copper thieves caught.  They are asking residents to report activity that might be suspicious to either Verizon Security at 800-997-3287, or the local law enforcement agency.

These particular copper cable thefts are causing telephone service outages.  Copper thieves have also targeted street lighting and air conditioning units.  The copper is recycled for cash.

Typically the utility companies send workers out during daylight hours.  It would only be in emergency outages that you might find employees working during the evening hours.  If you see workers at their facilities in the nighttime, you may want to report this as suspicious activity to the appropriate authorities.
