Metal thieves could face jail
TWO men who are accused of stealing a quantity of metal during an incident in Bruton have been warned they could face several years in prison if convicted.
Appearing in the dock before District Judge Lynne Matthews were Ashley Sherred, aged 21, of Old Sarum, Salisbury and David McDonald, aged 34, of Bishopsdown, Salisbury.
They were both jointly charged that on July 14 at Bruton they stole various items of cable of an unknown value belonging to Julian Emery.
Both defendants pleaded not guilty to the allegation and District Judge Matthews told them that the courts were now looking at imposing significant sentences for this type of crime.
