Six fined for stealing water

Six persons were convicted in the Portmore Resident Magistrate's Court recently for trespassing on the works of the National Water Commission (NWC).

According to the NWC, the accused, Nathalie Miller, Barrington Barnes, Pauline May Smith, Jennifer Rowe and Kedow Williams of Portmore and Greater Portmore, St Catherine, addresses, were all found guilty and charged a fine of $8,000 or spend 30 days in prison.

Nicole Monique Gray, also from a Portmore address, was fined $8,000 or spend 10 days in prison.

The NWC is reminding persons who continue to trespass on its network that once caught, they will be prosecuted and made to pay outstanding sums, which might have accured as a result of illegal activities.

The NWC also stated that they are willing to enter into any reasonable payment arrangement to ensure customers settle outstanding balances and to facilitate the regularisation of previous illegal connections.
