Mystery box on utility pole sparks questions

Questions remain regarding the origin of a mysterious box on a utility pole in Phoenix.

“I think it was a surveillance box… a camera,” said Brian Clegg, who alerted Salt River Project power company to the box on the utility pole.  Clegg described tinted windows on the box, which he believes allowed for surveillance cameras inside.

An SRP representative told Phoenix-based KNXV that no one had permission to put the box on their pole. 

Clegg has video of what he described as an SRP crew removing the box late last month.

The box was facing Clegg’s house, a strip mall and a high school.

SRP said there were indications that law enforcement was connected to the box, but did not elaborate.

Clegg said the crew who installed the box came in a truck marked “Field Pros.” 

A Google search of that name does not return any utility or surveillance company. Such a company is not registered in Arizona.
