JOHNS CREEK, Ga. — A Georgia Power representative contacted police June 11 to report a power meter that had been tampered with. 

The representative said on Jan. 22 a technician was checking a Medlock Bridge power meter and found that the seal had been tampered with, the lock bypassed, and the connector unplugged, causing the meter to not register the amount of power used by the connected business. 

The incident was documented, and the meter fixed. A similar incident was discovered June 10. The representative said Georgia Power does not want to pursue criminal charges at this time but will if the tampering happens again.
