An officer knocked on the door, which was answered by another woman, who said she'd been renting the unit for four months and had no idea it had been deemed uninhabitable and that she'd have to relocate. Later, police noticed the electric meter had been rigged with a jumper cable to bypass the meter. Southern California Edison was notified and photos of the device were taken.
