Telecommunications firm, LIME, is calling for stiffer penalties for persons who steal telephone cables.

The call comes after a man, Michael Sewell, pleaded guilty to larceny of the firm’s copper cables in court last week.

He was sentenced to 6 months at hard labour for stealing cables worth over one million dollars.

LIME Security Manager, Christopher Bryan says the theft of cables cost the company significantly and harsher sanctions would deter the practise.

Mr Bryan insists that in order for meaningful action to be taken, a coordinated approach must be employed
