Traffic light systems batteries stolen, vandalized
The Ministry of Public Infrastructure in a statement on Thursday said over the last eight days batteries were removed from the cabinets for the traffic signal systems installed at the following intersections: Sheriff Street & Garnett Street, Camp Street & Lamaha Avenue, Conversation Tree & Railway Embankment and UG Road & Rupert Craig Highway.
The Ministry is now seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the alleged perpetrators captured on CCTV.
The Ministry in its statement said this has been a reoccurring event and the Ministry wishes to notify the perpetrators and the persons purchasing the batteries that once found guilty of theft and vandalism by the Rule of Law for destroying Government’s property they shall be prosecuted accordingly.
The Ministry is therefore asking persons to refrain from vandalizing and stealing much needed public infrastructure.
The general public is kindly asked to contact the nearest police station, the Ministry’s Public Relations Department on 227-0799 or via the Ministry of Public Infrastructure Facebook page.
