Man charged for stealing electricity

A man the police reportedly caught stealing electricity was fined $15,000 or three months' imprisonment in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court on Monday.

He is Michael Wilson of a Corporate Area address.

Wilson pleaded guilty to the charge of abstracting electricity.

The court heard that the police went to a shop operated by Wilson and found that electrical wires had been tampered with.

Wilson is accused of using illegal electricity to operate two refrigerators, one fan, one component set and two 50-watt light bulbs.

Resident Magistrate Grace Henry McKenzie had asked the clerk of court the amount of electricity that was being channelled to run the devices. However, she was told that the amount was not stated.

A fingerprint order was also made against Wilson.
