Man allegedly draws power from neighbor’s home outlet

After a Kahului man reported seeing an extension cord plugged inside his house and running out the back, police arrested a neighbor living in the house to which the cable was connected.

Toby Alconcel, 22, was charged with first-degree burglary and theft of utilities. His bail was set at $5,200.

Police were called to the victim’s residence on Papa Avenue at 10:21 p.m. Sunday after he saw an extension cord that had been plugged in inside his house and was running out a window to the neighbor’s house, said acting Lt. Nelson Hamilton of the Criminal Investigation Division.

He said Alconcel lives at the house that the cable went to and was at the house when police arrived to investigate.
