JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Five employees in the City of Jackson’s Water and Wastewater Maintenance Division of the Department of Public Works were terminated on Friday, Dec. 18, as part of an ongoing probe of water theft.

Public Works Director Kishia Powell said other terminations could result, pending the outcome of the investigation. Powell reported that the initial results of the investigation revealed dwellings with illegal water installations.

Two arrests of city employees were made earlier this week as part of the investigation.
