After more than three months, no one has been arrested for the vandalism of a Bevcomm utility box last August.
Chief Deputy Scott Adams says the company is still offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of those responsible.
Adams says the department has received “good leads” and the lead investigator in the case is Deputy Jacob Peterson.
“But, our entire staff is familiar with the case and is always keeping their eyes and ears open,” he says.
Authorities say a handgun and rifle were used to fire nine shots into a utility box located at the intersection of 85th Street and 360th Avenue.
The incident occurred between 1:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. and caused $35,000 in damages, according to authorities.
Customers in the southwest rural Blue Earth serving area, according to Bevcomm, lost telephone and Internet services for about four hours.
Anyone who may have information is encouraged to call the Sheriff’s Office at 507-526-5148, ext. 2.
