Only yesterday, the Ministry of Public Infrastructure pleaded with the public to help identify a man who was caught vandalizing traffic light systems in Greater, Georgetown.
Today, the Ministry reported that another cabinet of a traffic controller unit was broken into last evening at the intersection of Conversation Tree & Rupert Craig Highway.
On four occasions, 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.
According to the Ministry of Public Infrastructure, this has been a recurring event and it 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 to report any acts of this nature.
