Man arrested in copper theft case in New Mexico
Question of the Day
SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - A Grants man has been arrested in connection with a copper theft that led to a nine-hour telecommunications blackout in New Mexico’s Cibola and McKinley counties.
New Mexico State Police was contacted by Century Link on May 7 about the theft of copper wire and damage to fiber optic cables.
Police say internet and some long distance services were disrupted on April 21.
Authorities analyzed evidence at the crime scene, interviewed multiple people and executed search warrants. That eventually led to the arrest of 39-year-old Patrick Landrum.
Landrum was taken into custody at a home in Gallup.
Police say Landrum is being held on suspicion of receiving stolen property, tampering with evidence, felony criminal damage to property and attempted felony larceny.
It was unclear Tuesday if Landrum has a lawyer.
