"a 73-year-old woman called police to report that electricity was being stolen from her home."

Police were probably surprised when they got there to find out it really was.

Look, all I know is that this cord was plugged into my house and your house was glowing like the freakin' sun. So, I put two and two together there and decided that you're pissing me off.

I remember one teacher's story from college, had a neighbour who was an electrician, guy set up some electromagnetic induction based rig that would make electricity through the mag field current

/said the hydro company got questioning why his bill dropped, apparently like a rock, and kinda didn't take too kindly to him piggybacking off the lines
//hmmmm, ideas

Fubini: Not new.

Just Google: "My neighbor is stealing my electricity." and you'll get enough stupid stories to last all morning.

I'll take that as an invitation.

My neighbor was running his whole house off of an extension cord from beside my porch.  Not well, but he had a fridge and TV.  They would let the fridge get cold, unplug it and plug in the TV and dvd player.  They cooled their house with box fans.

/They left late one night to avoid a DSS entaglement.
//I was surprised when their dog didn't turn up a few days later.
