At least 1,000 subscribers of the Philippine Long Distance Telephone Company (PLDT) were arbitrarily disconnected this month when a still unidentified group stole hundreds
of meters of copper wire cables in Toril, Davao City, an official of the
telecommunications firm said. 

Most of the phone lines were restored within 24 hours but the cable
thieves are still at large and would most likely strike again, Celso Sison,
manager of PLDT’s asset protection division told reporters Monday.

PLDT announced 1,565 lines, including voice and data lines, were
affected but clarified some lines were disconnected twice. PLDT has 60,000
subscribers in the city.

A four-person team has been closely investigating the pilferage cases,
Police Inspector Elizabeth Paltinca of the Toril Police station told this reporter 
in a telephone interview Monday.
