A STUDLEY man is set to stand trial accused of stealing more than 600 drain covers.
Graham Leith, of High Street, pleaded not guilty at Worcester Crown Court on Tuesday (June 12) to 12 charges of theft and one charge relating to the sale of a number of drain covers in Birmingham.
In total he is alleged to have stolen covers worth nearly £160,000 from Redditch, Alcester, Studley, Bromsgrove and the surrounding areas as well as Shirley and Nuneaton.
The offences took place between November 10 last year and January 17 this year, with the 26-year-old accused of targeting the Enfield Industrial Estate, Studley Road, Alders Drive and over 20 other roads, as well as Hewell Lane in Tardebigge, Green Lane in Studley and five destinations in Alcester.
Leith will stand trial on January 28 next year. He was released on bail but is not allowed to hire any vehicle and must live and sleep at his address in Studley.
