Four premises caught stealing electricity for crypto mining

Four premises at Kampong Melabau and one at Kampong Serusop were found to have unauthorised electrical connection or diversion for cryptocurrency mining operations.

These were found during a 30-man joint operation by the Department of Electrical Services (DES) on Wednesday. Joining the operation were Royal Brunei Police Force (RBPF), Fire and Rescue Department (FRD) and Autoriti Elektrik Negara Brunei Darussalam (AENBD).

The operation also targetting Kampong Lugu was aimed at minimising electricity and fire hazards as well as preventing unauthorised electrical connections.
