Public telephones stolen in Havana

HAVANA, Cuba, Oct. 13 (Leafar Pérez, – The block committees in the Havana neighborhood of Arroyo Naranjo are appealing to residents to help crack down on the theft of public telephones, which totaled 57 in the first 10 days of the month.

The telephones are either used personally by the thieves or sold. Cables connecting the phones are also often stolen and sold.

One of the suggestions made at a block committee meeting was to have someone of confidence take the phones into their homes at night, when the thefts usually occur.
