Two men have received prison sentences after pleading guilty to larceny of TSTT cables.
34-year-old Marlon Soodeen of Rio Claro and 41-year-old Vinod Sookdeo of Biche were handed the sentences when they appeared before Rio Claro Magistrate, Taramatie Ramdass, on Wednesday.
The two were held in the early hours of May 17th, after officers allegedly caught them wrapping the cables at the side of Tabaquite Road in Rio Claro.
A number of cable cutting tools were also seized.
Both were charged with larceny and will each serve sentences of 18-months’ hard labour.
