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?

Probably due to the utility shutting off power due to non-payment. They do this by cutting the seals, dropping them on the ground, and booting the meter.
