[2012] EWCA Crim 2167

A sentence of 12 months' imprisonment for the theft of lead from the roof of a house at night was appropriate. While the offence was not directly comparable with a burglary, it could be equally distressing for the householder, especially where he woke up in the night to find the theft in progress.

CA (Crim Div) (Richards LJ, Openshaw J, Judge Ford QC (Recorder of Bristol))
