A Tesla Model 3 owner undertook to use a stranger's outside connector to charge his car and left the vehicle on the man's lawn overnight to do it.
Phil Fraumeni of Lake Worth, Florida, woke up to find the electric vehicle on his property and his power was stolen Friday morning.
& # 39; It was connected to my electrical outlet in my house, & # 39; said Fraumeni WPBF.
A few hours later, when it was still not removed from its grass on Ardmore Drive, Fraumeni called the police.

Fraumeni heard for the first time that the Tesla stole his juice when his landscaper knocked on his door bright and early in the morning.
& # 39; It must have been at 7.30 and he knocks on the door and he says: & # 39; Phil, please move your car, & Fraumeni said.
The homeowner who has lived in the house for 20 years said his car was in the driveway, but the landscaper begged to be different.
The yard worker told him that he was talking about his other car, his white Tesla Model 3, but Fraumeni does not own an electric vehicle.
And yes, when he went outside, he saw the car parked on his grass and a 120-volt cord that stretched the full length between the vehicle and his house.

That is where the car owner had to leave it behind to gain access to Fraumeni's outside drain.
Authorities were able to retrieve the owner's address and contact him. The young man finally showed up, accompanied by a young woman.
The man told the authorities that he had been around Thursday night to visit a friend when the vehicle's battery was empty.
"From what the boy said, (it had been there) from midnight the night before, so it was 12 o'clock it was charging," Fraumeni said.
Fraumeni said the police had explained to the young man that it is not OK to steal people's electricity and park your car on their property to do it.
Fraumeni's wife, who was in a theme park with their children and grandchildren, said that the man did not even apologize and that he was lucky that it was her husband's home, not her.
Fraumeni, who took a much more light-hearted approach to the whole scenario, did not bring charges against the thief and the offender, nor did he request to be paid back for the power he used.
He said it has now become a bit of a joke around.
With a smile and a smile, Fraumeni said: & # 39; I need texts from 20 neighbors (saying) & # 39; Can we connect our cars to your home? & # 39;
