Electricity thieves have gone hi-tech as they try to counter the Jamaica Public Service Company’s JPS, multi-million dollar anti-theft initiative.
The power company has confirmed an increase in the discovery of sophisticated meter bypass devices used to steal electricity.
A statement from the JPS says investigations carried out last week in the Corporate Area and St. Catherine led to the discovery of the devices hidden in various parts of houses including ceilings and kitchen enclosures.
The equipment are used by JPS customers to conceal some or all of their electricity consumption.
