One of my rental properties i stopped by to check a couple things and while I was there I cut the hedges away from the power meter. On the meter, and on the ground i found no fewer than 5 cut tamper tags, and one cut one hanging on the meter. Tenant has been there for just under 3 years.
What are the possible reasons so many tags would get cut off this meter? I do not currently suspect the tenant did it. What other nefarious activities could have taken place?
