Light thieves target streetlights
2013-10-31 12:25:32 | (0 Comments)
The Jamaica Public Service Company Limited (JPS) says illegal activities have resulted in an increase in the number of streetlights out of service in downtown Kingston and surrounding areas.
The JPS says unscrupulous persons have turned to streetlights to illegally extract electricity instead of the usual so-called 'throw ups'.
It says this damages the streetlights and the cables which supply the lights.
The light and power company says it has repeatedly repaired the damaged streetlights, but as soon as the repairs are carried out breaches are again detected.
The JPS says it has also been reported to the company that some lights are being deliberately destroyed by criminals who seek to use the cover of darkness to carry out their crimes.
It is appealing to residents to desist from destroying streetlights and attempting to extract electricity from them.
