Knology seeks help, offers reward in finding copper thieves

Press Release

WEST POINT, GAKnology, Inc. is currently offering a reward of up to $10,000 through the Greater Valley Area Crime Stoppers for information leading to the felony arrest and conviction of the individual or individuals responsible for the recent theft of approximately 400 feet of copper cable.

On Friday, Nov. 12, between the hours of 9 p.m. and 11 p.m., unknown persons cut and removed copper telephone cable belonging to Knology.

The span of cable was located on the west side of the CSX train trestle, which crosses the Chattahoochee River in West Point.

The incident caused an interruption of telephone service for a number of residential and business customers in the service area.

"This is a very serious instance of company property theft and is a felony offense," says Jason Griggs, security and fraud coordinator for Knology, Inc. "Not only did Knology incur charges in losing and replacing this material, but more importantly, many of our customers were without service in their homes and at their places of business. We take service disruptions very seriously, and this behavior -- and its ramifications on our operations -- will not be tolerated."

If you have any information pertaining to Knology's recent cable theft, please contact the Crime Stoppers tip line at 334.756.5200.
