PHILADELPHIA – Counsel for PECO Energy Company is seeking official permission and assistance from the City of Philadelphia to repossess its property from a pair of defendants.

Angelina C. Williams filed a motion for a writ of seizure on Jan. 7, seeking to direct the Philadelphia County Sheriff to repossess a PECO electric meter for a residence in the 5500 block of Spruce Street in Philadelphia, within 10 days. And further, to provide Williams with five days of advance notice so a PECO representative could be present for the repossession, in addition to a bonded locksmith if necessary.

A hearing on the motion for a writ of seizure has been rescheduled for March 9.

Williams alleges defendant Gregory Sydney failed to make payments to PECO under the legal tariffs necessary for receiving electric service. As of Jan. 4, Williams alleges Sydney owed PECO $5,729.18, plus court costs.

Williams further claims breach of contract against both Sydney and fellow defendant Alvin Morrison, for allegedly refusing entry to the property on two occasions when PECO personnel arrived to change the electric meter on site.

On behalf of PECO, Williams is seeking judgment and access to the electric meter (serial number 105188595), valued at $73.00, along with replevin (or repossession) of the meter itself.

The plaintiff is represented by Angelina C. Williams in Philadelphia.

The defendants do not have listed legal representation, per court records.
