Theft of Services

May 2nd, 2016

 

At approximately 1626 hours on Monday May 2, 2016 Deputy Bunn was dispatched to 4493 Hempstead 3 in reference to theft of services.

 

Upon arrival he made contact with Hope Water and Light personnel who told deputy Bunn that the owner of the property called them and stated that the house next to her's did not have power run to it, and stated that, Jason Pettit, had been out there and had electricity.

 

HWL personnel stated that when they went to look to see if the power was being stolen from their lines and found that an extension cord went from the well, which belonged to the owner, to the breaker box on the side of the other house.

 

Deputy Bunn made contact with the owner and asked if she could tell how much electricity has been stolen from her and she stated that she could not tell on her bill. The Owner stated that Jason had done that before but she had a friend cut the wire.  Faye stated that Jason had been going to the house for about a month since the wire had been cut. 

 

Deputy Bunn arrested Jason Pettit for theft of services with a court date of June 6, 2016 at 0900 hours.
