Deputies monitoring PG&E substation in San Jose
SANTA CLARA COUNTY, Calif. (KGO) -- Santa Clara County Sheriff's deputies are at the PG&E Metcalf substation in San Jose after a man, dressed all in black, was seen running towards Monterey Road .
In April, fiber-optic cables were cut by vandals at the substation and a bank of PG&E transformers were shot by someone using a high-powered rifle. Power and phone service were disrupted at the time including 911 systems. AT&T power cables were also vandalized and the phone company offered a $250,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction.
Extra security was hired after that incident. The sheriff's department has set up a perimeter and shined lights into nearby fields to look for the man.
PG&E said power has not been disrupted and no vandalism occurred this morning.
