Douglas County Man Faces Charges for Stealing Electricity

A Douglas County man finds himself in legal trouble after allegedly stealing electricity services from Georgia Power.

While the sheriff’s office did not disclose specifics regarding the extent of the alleged theft or damage, the case remains pending prosecution, restricting the release of further details.

One of Costiloe’s neighbors, 75-year-old Alice Woods, recounted discovering a wire stretched across her front porch, surreptitiously connected to the electrical utility. “I caught them at least three times with the real heavy extension cord type thing made out of wire,” Woods lamented, highlighting the financial strain the theft imposed on her already modest budget.

While legal proceedings are pending in Costiloe’s case, Woods expressed her disdain for such acts of theft, emphasizing the moral ramifications for the perpetrators. “Who do they think they are to steal from us?” she questioned, urging reflection on the ethical implications of such actions.
