Chief executive officer of the Jamaica Public Service (JPS), Kelly Tomblin, has signaled that dark days are ahead for the light and power company if approximately 200,000 electricity thieves are allowed to continue their rampage. Tomblin told journalists at a press conference yesterday that the company's creditors are warily observing the situation in Jamaica. She warned that while she was not inclined to indulge in 'scaremongering', the JPS could be abandoned in the event of continued stealing of the company's resources. Tomblin added that the JPS was pushing for electricity thieves to be banished behind prison walls instead of being slapped with meager fines that have not been affected. She says that the JPS spends around $30 million annually to combat the scourge to little or no effect.
