Wire thefts public safety issue

Frontier Communications wants the public’s help in ending thefts that leave its customers without telephone and Internet service, including emergency 911 access.

The latest theft of copper wire Monday cut service to about 200 Frontier customers in the Little York and Gibson Township areas of Scott County.

“We’ve got to stop this from happening,” he added.
