The theft of a water pump at the Port Antonio Health Clinic in Portland has resulted in a major disruption of services at the facility.

The pump was stolen last Thursday by thieves who allegedly cut through a grille and removed the equipment.

A source at the Portland Health Department confirmed the theft of the water pump and said the police are investigating.

According to the source, the health department is also carrying out its own probe.

The act of vandalism has severely disrupted normal operations at the clinic, which serves several communities.

Security has been increased at the health clinic in the wake of the theft.
