A Lubbock man faces a felony criminal mischief charge for allegedly buying and using a stolen meter to avoid paying for electricity. 

Juan Manuel Benavides Jr., 36, was indicted by a grand jury last month. He remains free on bond. 

According to investigators, an LP&L employee reported he suspected the electric meter assigned to Benavides' address had been replaced by an unauthorized meter. 

Police reports do not say how much electricity Benavides may have used.
