PHOENIX - Vandals snipped four guy wires attached to a power pole, toppling the pole and cutting power to more than 5,700 customers in Goodyear, officials said Monday.

By Monday afternoon, 4,900 customers remained without power, said Arizona Public Service spokesman Damon Gross.

Gross said the pole was located on a hill, making it tough for workers to reach it.

Power was expected to be restored by 4 p.m.

Officials decided it would be easier to fix the problem by leaving the blackouts stable rather than by spreading them around periodically as was originally planned.

The incident was reported to the Goodyear Police Department and the utility was also investigating Monday.
