Eber then called the Cass County Jail and got in touch with Haynes, who said Hook had permission to be at the residence.
Haynes later admitted he stole the package and Hook chose to press charges.
Eber reported Haynes maintained he is not responsible for the nail allowing his trailer to have electricity, “but knew he had electricity and was not paying for it and that it was illegal.”
The Cass County Prosecutor’s Office charged Haynes with receiving stolen property and theft, both class D felonies. Haynes entered a preliminary plea of not guilty earlier this month. A jury trial is scheduled for April.
