CORAM - Police in Coram are investigating possible vandalism after an outdoor Verizon fuse box was broken into over the weekend. Verizon officials say nearly 40 customers' land lines were affected by the incident Sunday. Police say the word "MAD" was written on the box and the wires were mangled. Some residents say the outage lines up too closely with the recent Verizon work stoppage. "Suspicious," one resident said. "I thought it was too much of a coincidence." Another resident told News 12 Long Island that she believes service will not be restored until Aug. 16.
