Overnight burglary spree hits 4 SW. metro businesses; ATM swiped

Nov 07, 2012 (Star Tribune (Minneapolis) - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) -- An overnight burglary spree in the southwest metro struck four businesses, with one of them having an automatic teller machine hauled away from a restaurant, authorities said.

No arrests have been made in the three break-ins or the attempted break-in Monday in Watertown, Mayer and Norwood Young America, which the Carver County Sheriff's Office says have similarities.

Descriptions of the suspects, based on surveillance video, lack details. Authorities are looking for two males, one about 5 feet 8 inches tall with a medium build. The other appears taller and stockier.

A green Jeep Grand Cherokee is also being sought in at least one of the crimes.

According to the Sheriff's Office: An alarm brought sheriff's deputies to the Luce Line Lodge in downtown Watertown shortly before 4:20 a.m. Surveillance video shows two males on the property and the Jeep at the front door. At least one suspect went up a ladder and cut a cable on the roof.

A side door was pried open, and the ATM was removed.

The same suspects and Jeep appear on video at the Mobil Mart in Mayer, where they cut phone wires but nothing was taken.

In Norwood Young America, the Creative Hair Salon and Family Dollar Store had their back doors pried open and suspects attempted to carry away safes.

Anyone with information about these crimes is asked to call the Sheriff's Office at 952-361-1231.

Reflections from an Interop Veteran and Alum

When I returned to the Fiber Mountain™ offices in Connecticut after exhibiting at Interop Las Vegas 2015, I couldn’t help but think about how much the event has evolved through the years. I have been attending this seminal IT and networking conference since its inception in 1986 when it was called the TCP/IP Vendor Workshop, focused on interoperability of various TCP/IP program stacks.

What Fiber Mountain's Interop Recognition Means for Our Industry

When Fiber Mountain™ began its journey with a launch at Interop New York last fall, we certainly believed that we had a solution that would make a significant impact in the data center space.

What On-Board Optics Means for Density and Flexibility

This past week I read an article in Lightwave Magazine and another in Network World about the formation of the Consortium for On-board Optics (COBO), a group that seeks to create specifications and increase the faceplate density of data center switches and adapters.
