Black market fine
A COOLBELLUP man who used Facebook Marketplace to sell an iPad that was stolen from a school has copped a $1500 fine.
Steven Ryan Buckle, 34, appeared in Fremantle Magistrate’s Court on September 11 and pleaded guilty to receiving.
Magistrate Adam Hills Wright said Buckle “knew full well” the device was stolen.
The buyer alerted police after noticing the $550 device – which they traded for a smartphone – had identification engravings.
He was also ordered to pay court costs of $225.90.
