On 14 March 2022 in Kasanyangan, a member-consumer of the ZAMCELCO caught a private electrician reconnecting the wirings tapped to his kWh meter, which were the source of the electricity of at least 141 households in the neighborhood. However, out of the three (3) suspected private electricians, he only caught one (1) who is now detained at the Tetuan Police Station through a citizens arrest for violating the Republic Act 7832 or commonly known as “Anti-electricity and Electric Transmission Lines/Materials Pilferage Act of 1994”.

The New ZAMCELCO already filed a criminal case against the private electrician for using altered meters, direct tapping, flying, and other illegal connections in the area.
