Communications Equipment Vandalized in Cavendish

On April 4, VT State Police Rockingham took a report of two separate vandalism incidents occurring over the past couple months at the intersection of VT Route 131 and the Whitesville Road in Cavendish, VT. Both incidents involve the damaging of telephone equipment that is contained in a metallic box attached to a CVPS pole that was recently relocated in the fall due to the extreme flooding from Tropical Storm Irene. These boxes bring phone increased phone service to the area and are utilized for basic residential communications. During the past couple months an unknown subject smashed the equipment with what appeared to be a snow plow and more recently by shooting through the box with a small caliber bullet. This is concerning not only to the damage of the property but also the close proximity to local residences should the intended round not have hit it's target. This damage is currently costing the company as well as TDS subscribers thousands of dollars in additional monies to repair this damage. If anyone has information pertaining to these crimes please contact the Vermont State Police at 802/875-2112. State Police Press Release
