For the 11th time within a year, a purposefully severed fiber optic cable was found in the San Francisco Bay Area.
The latest attack was discovered Tuesday morning in Livermore, California, joining other attacks dating back to July 6, 2014.
The FBI in connection with local law enforcement is investigating the vandalism that has occurred in Fremont, Walnut Creek, Alamo, Berkeley, San Jose and now Livermore.
FBI Special Agent Greg Wuthrich told USA Today that the attacks are “disturbing” and called for public assistance in reporting any suspicious activity.
Richard Doherty, research director of The Envisioneering Group, added that this is a “terrible social crime that affects thousands and millions of people.”
When fiber optic cables are cut, it can affect Internet, phone and television service for area businesses and residential customers.
