COPPERAS COVE -- A Copperas Cove man is behind bars after trying to steal a neighbor's electric meter to save on his own utilities.
The neighbor of Micah Scott Sherman noticed her electric meter was gone after her power shut off in her apartment on the 100 block of East Truman.
She then reported it to her landlord who told her Sherman had recently been evicted.
When police showed up to Sherman's new home in the 500 block of North 2nd Street they found the woman's meter feeding power inside.
