Talk to me about the tap on the service entrance (lateral) single phase supply?
Does it look like an electrician did this?

An example of the pains that an energy thief will go through to cheat the utility company. This subject took possession of a new home and immediately cut into the riser from the inside and tapped into the underground lines.

A better view of the cut riser and the wiring that was tapped into. The subject extended the wiring into the attic where a secondary set of circuit breakers was discovered.
