There may be criminal charges coming out of a cable outage last week.
It happened on October 1st, coming from a damaged overhead line on County Road 444 in Turin Township.
The damage to the fiber-optic cable took down Charter service in Escanaba and most of Dickinson County for several hours.
A local resident may be responsible.
The sheriff’s department says it looks like someone blasted the cable with a shotgun, and they have a suspect in mind.
They’ve turned the case over to the county prosecutor’s office, and they’ll determine if any charges are necessary.
