A YOUNG man caught with stolen parking clamps planned to sell them, a court heard.
When asked who he thought would pay for them, Daniel Crosby (24) said he would "sell to whoever would buy them".
Judge David McHugh fined Crosby €100, saying the scheme sounded "ridiculous".
The defendant, of St Joseph's Way, Ballymun, admitted before Blanchardstown District Court to handling stolen property at McKee Avenue, Finglas, last August 14.
Gda Aidan McHugh said he stopped the defendant shortly before 4pm and found him with the stolen clamps.
Defence lawyer Ciaran MacLoughlin said Crosby's plan was "very stupid".
When asked by the judge what he planned on doing with the clamps, Mr MacLoughlin said Crosby was going to "sell them to whoever would buy them".
Mr MacLoughlin said the plan "sounds more ridiculous the more you say it".
