**UPDATE: Solved! Owners of mystery box on Phoenix utility pole come forward

Questions remain regarding the origin of a mysterious box on a utility pole near 21st and Glendale avenues in Phoenix.

“I think it was a surveillance box… a camera,” said Brian Clegg, who alerted SRP 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 ABC15 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.
