UTICA, N.Y. - Utica Police were called to Mohawk Valley Community College Sunday morning after receiving a report of damage to a cell phone tower on campus.
So far, no word of any arrest in the case or how extent the damage to the cell phone tower is.
Utica Police Sgt. Michael Curley says as soon as more information is available, he will release it.
He says the campus is not shut down, but an event that was taking place on campus had to be moved to another location.
Back in December, a Utica man, 38-year old Nathaniel Sergio, was arrested and charged with criminal trespass, criminal tampering, and criminal mischief for allegedly damaging several emergency communication and cell towers.
At the time, Oneida County Sheriff Robert Maciol said Sergio was released due to the new bail reform laws.
Curley say one of the towers Sergio was alleged to have damaged back in December is this very same tower that was police are now investigating today.
The event at MVCC that had to be relocated is the very popular the United Way Take and Make Meal Box Giveaway, which people had to sign up for to get a time to pick up their meal box, has been moved to the Parkway Center in Utica.
