Man steals electricity with meat hook

A man in Germany is being investigated after he allegedly stole electricity from a high-voltage overhead transmission line for a month using an ordinary meat hook.

Authorities say that the 36-year old man from Sibbesse, in Lower Saxony, came up with the plan to steal electricity after the power company cut him off for not paying his bills.
The man attached a cable to the meat hook and threw it onto the overhead power line. He then drew power from the transmission line to his home, about 150 metres away.
‘I’ve never seen anything like this in my 34-year-career,’ said Friedrich-Wilhelm Lach, chief executive of regional utility company Ueberlandwerke Leinetal GmbH. ‘It’s incredibly dangerous and utterly stupid.’
