When Diggers Go Crazy

Two men have admitted stealing diggers from a building site and causing up to £6,000 of damage as they raced them through an area of Glasgow.

Kevin Barr, 21, and Garry Rooney, 18, stole the vehicles from Cruden Building Site in Drumchapel in December 2009.

They were caught by police drinking inside the diggers after destroying a church wall and several street lights.

At Glasgow Sheriff Court, sentence on Barr and Rooney was deferred and both were remanded in custody.

The pair, who are being held in Polmont Young Offenders Institution, also admitted driving dangerously and striking street lights, a fence, a wall and an electricity box and stealing boots and jackets from a portable cabin at the site.

We shouldn’t find this story amusing, but with the maximum speed of a digger around 4-5km per hour, we can’t imagine them exactly speeding around the streets of Glasgow!
