- Have you seen anyone stealing electricity?
The city is asking anyone who sees someone who might be stealing
electricity to all 209-333-6815.
City spokesman Jeff Hood said people should look for extension
cords or neighbors continuously playing with the meter because only
city employees should be fixing or touching the devices.

During the past 10 months, Lodi Electric Utility employees have
found new, creative ways to make sure the power stays off after the
city pulls the plug.
Residents who have had their power shut off for not paying their
bills have found ways to steal electricity. Some run extension
cords to a neighbor’s house while others tamper with the meter box
or electrical panel to bypass the shut-off measures.
