"It occupies a house and creates an abusive connection to the light": arrested merchant


First he would have illegally occupied the house, in the Pupello courtyard: in the historic center of Favara. Then, to live in that residence, he would have made an abusive connection to the public lighting network. A thirty-four-year-old merchant from Favara was arrested by the police of the city tenancy. He was investigated for aggravated theft of electricity and, while awaiting the validation hearing, was placed under house arrest.

The soldiers of the Army carried out the inspection together with Enel technicians. The unauthorized connection to the electricity grid immediately caught the eye and therefore the merchant, who was not the owner of the house, was arrested. The carabinieri have therefore ascertained that the man in that house resided there illegally: he had, according to the accusation, illegally occupied. In fact, the house was found to be the property of a 75-year-old pensioner who had moved to live in Palermo.

The man was, of course, also referred to the Public Prosecutor's Office also for the illegal occupation.
