Deputies responded Tuesday to 142 N. Oak St., Lakeview, to speak with the electric superintendent for the Village of Lakeview regarding a criminal mischief complaint relating to electric meters at the property.
Village employees checking meters Tuesday discovered that the electric meters at the residence had been tampered with. The meter seals reportedly had been cut and meter to the upstairs apartment had been turned upside down, apparently in an effort to steal electricity.
However , the electric superintendent reported that both meters are electronic and had been remotely disconnected, so stealing electricity was not achieved by the suspect(s).
