The Jamaica Public Service Company Limited (JPS) says one of its employees has been arrested and charged following a lengthy investigation into alleged corrupt practices of meter tampering involving business customers.

The company says the arrest comes as part of its zero-tolerance stance against corruption within the entity.

The company says over the past few years it has stepped up the monitoring of employees and contractors suspected of involvement in corruption, and has been thoroughly investigating all allegations of corruption from members of the public.

It says in 2014, four employees and two contractors were dismissed from the company and four former contractors were arrested.
