Published:Monday | June 10, 2013 | 8:50 AM

The female operator of a wholesale enterprise in Kingston  is scheduled to appear in court next week Monday.



The woman is among 10 business owners who have been arrested for electricity theft in the Corporate Area and St Catherine.



The arrests were made last week, as the Jamaica Public Service Company Limited (JPS) continued its initiative against electricity theft.



The JPS says the business owners have been using meter bypasses and other methods to steal electricity.



The JPS says since the start of the year several business operators have been taken before the courts.



The light and power company says since January more than 77,000 illegal connections have been removed and 114 people arrested.
