Illegal electricity connections used to power entire lane

Three St Catherine residents are to appear in the Spanish Town Resident's Magistrate's Court on October 8 to answer to charges of illegally abstracting electricity.
The trio was arrested during a major operation by work crews of the Jamaica Public Service Company (JPS) on Dovecot Crescent near Spanish Town on Friday.
The JPS says its crews removed 120 illegal connections in the community and identified 16 other cases of irregularity.
The JPS says in a nearby community off St John's Road, its crews discovered that stolen electricity was being used to supply power to the houses on an entire lane.
According to the JPS, the illegal connections ran from Colt's Road, went across an open land, up a privately erected pole and then went to roughly 15 households on a lane off Fairfield Road.
The company has expressed deep concern about the running of the wire across the open land saying it presented serious risks to persons travelling in the area.
The JPS is appealing to persons to desist from stealing electricity and instead to regularise their supply.
