Three Years for Middleton Metal Thief
A man who risked his life scaling pylons - just to cut down copper cable - has been jailed.
Desmond Brady, 43, of no fixed abode, pleaded guilty to attempted theft and damaging property at an earlier hearing. On Monday he was sentenced to three years in prison.
On 21 August 2011, Brady and two unidentified accomplices scaled an electricity pylon at Heaton Farm, off Heywood Old Road, Middleton. Once at the top, the offenders cut through the earth cable and fibre optic cable attached to it.
