On January 09 at approximately 12:20 a.m., Falls Township Police were alerted by a Comcast worker of a possible act of vandalism in the area of Tyburn Road and Woolston Drive. Police met with the field maintenance supervisor who reported the following. He observed a dark colored pick up truck parked along the side of the roadway and ultimately observed a older male operator outside the woodline adjacent to a railroad embankment. Shortly after observing the male operator, the supervisor was advised of multiple outages in the Morrisville area while doing routine checks and maintenance. He determined that the location he observed the male subject from earlier was where the problem would be located and noticed the truck was full of hardware and assorted items. He also observed several fiber optic cables running from an overhead railroad bridge to a buried junction had been cut. Additionally, several splicing junctions had been cut out. After the Comcast employee questioned the male about the cables, the male left the area. Police were able to locate the vehicle a short time later in the parking lot of a 7-11. Police also observed in the vehicle, black cylindrical housing of the splicing junction as well as several lengths of fiber optic cable. Bolt cutters were also observed in the passenger side of the vehicle. The owner of the vehicle was identified as Kenneth A. Benjamin Sr., he was identified as the same male the Comcast employee saw and was taken into custody.
Communication service to Morrisville Borough was interrupted by the damage.
