On September 9, 2016, the United States Department of Justice announced that Reynoldsburg Police Officer Shane M. Mauger, 42, of Columbus, Ohio, was sentenced in U.S. District Court to 33 months in prison for using his position as a police officer to deprive people of their civil rights by falsifying search warrant affidavits and unlawfully seizing money and property during drug trafficking investigations.

“This is unreasonable search and seizure,” said Stahl, 40, who believes the devices designed to monitor power usage are intrusive and pose a health risk. “It definitely is not OK for my utility … to know when I’m home and not home.” Continue reading
