A FISHERMAN pawned jewellery belonging to his mother and sister – but claimed he did not know its true owners.
Andrew Hart, aged 32, handed over bracelets and other jewellery worth an estimated £1,100, Plymouth Crown Court heard. Hart, of Fillace Park, Horrabridge, admitted three counts of fraud. He took the jewellery to a pawnbroker, which he had no authority to do because he was not the true owner. Hart told the court during his trial that his drug-addicted brother Marcus had given him the stolen property for him to sell.
