JPS Fights illegal Connections

Jamaica's only electricity provider says crews have pulled down nearly 10,000 illegal connections to the power grid and police have arrested over 300 people for theft so far this year. In a statement issued, the Jamaica Public Service Co. says it is "relentlessly pursuing" electricity thieves in neighborhoods where a tangle of illegal wires can often be seen tapping into power lines.

Jamaica's government has a 20 percent stake in the electricity distributor JPS, where power theft has long been rampant and overlooked for years on the island.
