KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas City Police and Crime Stoppers are offering a $5,000 for information that helps lead them to two people they want to speak with about fiber lines that were damaged in January and caused Chiefs fans to miss a historic game.

Police released the photos in the gallery above that show two people approach the fiber optic lines in a wooded area near NW Englewood Road and NW Waukomis Drive and stand behind a tractor-trailer.

Shortly after, there was a cable outage in the Northland that not only impacted fans who were at home watching, but also fans who were at local restaurants watching the game.
