San Diego military bases not affected by cable theft

Two San Diego military bases were not affected by the late-night theft of cable lines that has disrupted communications in parts of the county, base officials said Tuesday.

Between midnight and 1 a.m., 75 feet of fiber optic cable and six feet of strand copper cable were cut and stolen near Peutz Valley in the Alpine area, the San Diego County Sheriff's Department said.

Initial indications were that communications at the 32nd Street Naval Station and Miramar Marine Corps Air Station were disrupted. But base spokesmen said that was not the case.

The repairs may not be completed until Tuesday night, the Sheriff's Department said.
