Electric car owner fined 6,000 kroner for stealing electricity

A Swedish man has been sentenced to 30 daily fines totaling 6,000 kroner because he stole electricity for his electric car.

You must not commit crime. Not even if you drive an electric car.

However, some electric car owners find it difficult to understand. A 50-year-old man from Växjö in Sweden has just been sentenced for plugging a charging cable from his electric car into a socket belonging to a housing association.

He found the socket in a parking garage. This is written by Sveriges Radio .

The 50-year-old electric car owner did not have permission to use the socket, so he is now convicted of stealing the electricity he used in his electric car.

The penalty amounts to 9,000 Swedish kroner, corresponding to just under 6,100 Danish kroner. The socket was otherwise an ordinary 220 volt socket, which, in any case, the Swedish emergency services advise against the use of electric car owners. Theft or not.

It is not the first time that an electric car owner has been convicted of stealing electricity from others. A 78-year-old Polestar owner is convicted of sucking on the lamps at the municipality. Strommen found the elderly driver in a love closet out in a forest.

But it also happens that electric car owners get a free say in that discussion. A court in Germany thought last year that it was too strict for a company to fire an employee because he set his hybrid car to suck electricity for 3 kroner. Read more about it here .

Back in Sweden, the penalty for electricity theft is a fine or prison for up to one year. In particularly serious cases, however, the Swedes can increase the penalty to four years behind bars.
