A PERVERT who got a sexual thrill from covering himself in manure and setting fire to things terrorised a farmer's family.
David Truscott prowled Clive Roth's farm at night wearing shiny red shorts and latex gloves, causing thousands of pounds of damage.
The unemployed 35--year-old visited Woodbury House Farm, near Redruth,Cornwall, frequently over a seven-month period to satisfy his sick perversions.
On one occasion, he stripped off, climbed into a muckspreader full of manure and committed a sex act.
Another time, the weirdo, who owned 360 pairs of girls' knickers and slept in women's pyjamas, rolled around in manure while attempting to set fire to a tractor. He also set fire to and destroyed a timber shed, animal feed and a barn.
Truscott, of Redruth, yesterday admitted three counts of arson and one of burglary.
Prosecutor Simon Jones said the Roth family became increasingly terrified by Truscott's behaviour, Matters came to a head this month, when items were stolen and the imprint of buttocks appeared in manure, surrounded by tissues.
Police set up a surveillance operation and caught Truscott, who was carrying a bag full of underwear, women's trousers and firelighters.
