Prosecutors say that the couple sent an employee up on a forklift with rubber gloves to disconnect an illegal power hook up shortly before ComEd inspectors arrived. Another time, the employee was sent out with a jackhammer to reroute gas lines. "The brazen nature of these thefts is exceeded only by the dangerous conditions that these individuals were willing to expose their employees to," said Cook County State's Attorney Anita Alvarez told the Tribune.
