Rasbert Turner, Star Writer

A St Catherine woman who gave the police a wrong name after she was caught illegally abstracting electricity from the Jamaica Public Service, was made to pay $50,000 when she appeared in the Linstead Resident Magistrate's Court on Friday.

She is Lotoya Jones, labourer, of Grateful Hill in Glengoffe.

When the matter came up, the court heard that she told investigating officer Sergeant Delroy Dacres that her name was Keisha Thompson. She was subsequently fined by the court.

Meanwhile, Dwaine Bryan also of Grateful Hill, was fined $10,000 for a similar offence.

The court heard that in May, JPS and police personnel went to a house in Glengoffe and notice that there were illegal connections. Both persons were subsequently charged by the police.

They were not represented when they appeared in court .
