A woman told Gadsden police she believes a neighbor has been stealing water from her by attaching a hose to an outside tap.
The woman reported the house next door to her in the 600 block of Polk Street has been condemned for some time, by order of the City of Gadsden, but there have been multiple reports of the former resident and others continuing to stay there.
She reported that her water service had been cut off because last months' bill was enormous — more than she could afford to pay — and she didn’t know why it had skyrocketed.
Than another neighbor contacted her, telling her he’s seen the woman who’d lived next door and a man in the victim’s backyard twice, hooking a hose up to the outside tap at the back of her residence, and apparently running water to the condemned house next door.
