Huddersfield magistrates were told that Robert Law, 48, was accused of stealing 40 metres of cable worth more than £15,000 belonging to Network Rail at the Bridge, Milnsbridge, on June 16.
Three days later, he is said to have stolen another 40 metres of the two-core cable, worth £3,135.
He is accused of returning to the same spot on June 20, and this time taking £8,600 worth of cable.
