A handful of corporate customers were left without e-mail and Internet
access Monday after the theft of networking equipment from a New York City
office late Sunday.

Law enforcement officials said four DS-3 cards were reported missing from
a Manhattan co-location facility owned by Verizon Communications Inc. The
theft at 240 E. 38th St. occurred just after 10:30 p.m. on Sunday and is
being investigated by New York City Police and members of the joint
terrorism task force, according to NYPD spokesman Lt. Brian Burke.,1759,1583359,00.asp
