With a power saw?  Goodness, that sounds noisy in the middle of the
night.  I'd have thought a low tech ax would do the job. :-)

Probably a disgruntled customer, with cable bundles that repair says
were supposed to be replaced 12 years ago, but engineering says isn't
in the budget (like my SBC/Ameritech neighborhood in Ann Arbor).

Sigh, not enough criminal instinct here.
