Fremont resident charged with intent to build destructive device
The FPD said they investigated several incidents of vandalism in September where power lines, including phone lines, were cut in a residential Fremont neighborhood. They eventually identified Roshan Patel as the suspect in at least two of those cases.
Comcast/Xfinity, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon suffered $300,000 in damages from vandalism. In every incident, several thousand residents could not access the Internet or make phone calls, including 911, the FPD said.

Patel was arrested on September 28. During a search warrant granted at his residence, law enforcement recovered several items that were determined to be used to make explosive devices. The discovery of their electronic equipment yielded information about the manufacture of explosive devices.
