GARNER, Iowa – A Hancock County man is pleading not guilty to stealing service from Alliant Energy.
45-year-old Dennis Michael Martin of Garner is facing one count of 2nd degree theft. Alliant Energy says it shut off service to Martin’s home four separate times between July and October due to lack of payment but Martin reconnected his property every time. The company says it placed a lock on Martin’s gas meter on one occasion, only to return to find the lock cut off and the gas turned back on.
Alliant Energy says it eventually confiscated Martin’s gas meter so it could not be reconnected. The company also says Martin owes it $1,246.59 in fees over this matter.
A trial is now scheduled for February 21, 2018.
