Police say they recovered more than 40 cell site batteries, with a value of $2.5 Million, the property of FLOW Jamaica Limited during an operation in Norwood, St. James on Wednesday, April 10.
They say, from information received the batteries were stolen from FLOW’s mobile sites and Multi-Service Access Nodes (MSANs) in the parishes of St. Ann and Trelawny. These items provide the necessary electronics and circuitry to facilitate internet, cable and fixed voice services.
The driver of a motorcar, that was utilizing four of the batteries to power what police call “a massive sound system that was installed in the car,” was taken into custody in connection with the seizure.
The operation is ongoing.
