Commital for thief who was selling on Facebook

Wed, 27 Jul 2016


A Douglas man who was caught with an 'Aladdin's cave' of stolen items which he was selling on Facebook will appear in court today.
 
34-year-old Mark Hughes was committed to the Court of General Gaol Delivery at an appearance at Douglas Courthouse last week. 
 
He's previously pleaded guilty to nine counts of theft between October 1st and November 5th last year - he stole toys, clothing and household goods worth £3,600 from shops across the Island. 
 
In addition he also admitted stealing 50 toys from Tynwald Mills valued at over £2,000 and being in possession of £1,560 of criminal property when police raided his flat. 
 
During the court appearance last week he also entered guilty pleas to having no insurance or driving licence when he was stopped at McDonalds on Peel Road on February 23rd. 
 
Hughes, who's been remanded at the Isle of Man Prison, will appear before Deemster Montgomerie this morning.
