Milford Man Charged with Electricity Theft

MILFORD—Police arrested a 48-year-old Spindrift Lane man on a warrant Wednesday for allegedly stealing close to $7,000 worth of electricity from the United Illuminating Co., police said.
Police said on Nov. 28 the department received a complaint from UI regarding a theft of services and equipment that had been tampered with at 6 Spindrift Lane.
Investigation revealed that representatives from UI found a hazardous condition at the home consisting of an illegal electrical tap that was supplying unmetered electricity to the home.
After revisiting the home UI representatives found that a new unauthorized service has been installed again providing unmetered electricity to the home, police said. Police said it’s estimated that $6,915 worth of unmetered electricity was supplied to Robert Uberti’s home from Sept. 2007 through Nov.2011.
Uberti was charged with third-degree larceny and first-degree criminal mischief.
He was released on a promise to appear in Superior Court in Milford April 17.
