You know the economy is bad when people are stealing fiber optic cable...

Thieves Steal Fiber Optic Cable & Create $10,000 In Damages

By KBJR News 1

Superior police officers are investigating a theft at Conner's Point.

Monday morning officers were called there after someone stole 200 feet of fiber optic cable that caused $10,000 in damages and some Century Tel customers to be without phone, internet, and television services for some time.

A Century Tel employee witnessed three people fleeing from the area; two of whom stopped to role a boulder onto the road so they could not be followed.

One suspect is described as a white male in his 40's with short gray hair, wearing a light blue, button-up shirt and blue jeans.

The other two were described as a male in his mid 20's with wavy blonde hair, wearing a white t-shirt and jeans and a woman with brown hair.

They fled in an older white or cream colored ford F-150 pickup truck with a brown trim stripe on the bottom.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Superior Police Department.
