Electricty Theft At 416 30th Ave. N, Picture Three
The wire runs from the back door, across the yard, and meets a portion of the electrical wire which runs over the utility building, where the wire has been stripped bare...a dangerous procedure, I am sure.
What a shame I didn't have my camera to record the electrical tap to my house. They used multiple cords strung together, some quite colorful, including cords designed to carry cable television signals, not electricity. Amazing. The police, city housing inspectors and XCel energy were all over this.
The house is now empty and boarded after housing inspectors went there with police. More on the story to follow. (Don't click READ MORE)
