Six persons were each fined $25,00 or 30 days hard labour today in the Spanish Town Resident Magistrate’s Court for abstracting electricity from the network of the Jamaica Public Service Company.
The accused were fined after pleading guilty.
In handing down the sentence Resident Magistrate Vaughn Smith told the accused that the fines are small as they did not waste the court's time.
The court heard that on November 12 police and personnel from the JPS conducted a raid in Portmore, St Catherine.
The accused were found illegally connected to the utility company power supply.
They were subsequently charged.
