eBay Inc : Made Pounds 30k from fake designer clothes

A MAN who sold fake designer clothing on eBay has been ordered to hand over more than Pounds 30,000.

Luke Geoffrey Baker, 24, set up his own eBay shop named Dynamic Look and advertised polo shirts and jeans at discount prices.

He made more than Pounds 2,000 a month before his site was closed down - because they were counterfeit brands.

Baker was sentenced in September of last year but yesterday was back at Mold Crown Court for a financial hearing under The Proceeds of Crime Act.

An order, agreed by both prosecutor Chris Moss and Stephen Edwards, defending, showed that his criminal benefit to be Pounds 30,480.

Judge Philip Hughes made a confiscation order for that sum, and ordered that he should serve 15 months in custody if the money was not paid.

The judge also ordered that a camera and a laptop should be forfeited.

At an earlier hearing Baker admitted three trademarks offences and received an 18 week prison sentence suspended for 12 months and he was ordered to carry out 250 hours unpaid work.

Power tools stolen from warehouse to sell on eBay

A FORKLIFT truck driver who stole £40,000 worth of power tools from the warehouse he worked at has been jailed for two years.

Anthony Hart, of Lodden Avenue, Berinsfield, was sentenced on Tuesday at Oxford Crown Court after he pleaded guilty to three counts of theft by an employee.

His accomplice, 30-year-old Yunus Cevahir, received a 12-month suspended sentence for accepting the stolen tools and selling them over the internet.

Jehad Mustafa, prosecuting, said Hart stole Milwaukee power tools from a warehouse in Purchas Road, near Didcot, belonging to logistics firm Kuehne & Nagel.

The barrister said the 44-year-old used his forklift truck to load goods into a waiting car on September 25, September 26 and October 8, 2012.

Mr Mustafa said the father-of-five was caught on the warehouse's CCTV, which was installed after his employers realised tools had gone missing.

He told Judge Gordon Risius that when Hart was spotted acting suspiciously on the footage a private investigator was hired to follow the car he was meeting.

This led them to Cevahir, Mr Mustafa explained, who had been selling the tools on eBay and pleaded guilty to one count of handling stolen goods.

Soldier stole £115k of hi-tech night vision equipment for friend to sell on eBay

14 Jan 2014 17:35

Steven Barratt was described as a "soldier of distinction" who had excelled on five tours of duty

A Liverpool soldier stole £115,000 of hi-tech army night-vision equipment which his friend put up for sale on eBay.

Steven Barratt, 29, described as a "soldier of distinction" who had excelled on five tours of duty, pinched the classified equipment from an infantry camp in South Wales.

In all, 28 night vision sights of three different types and ammunition magazines were taken, a court was told.

Barratt, of Berwyn Road, Anfield , was jailed for 20 months and dishonourably discharged from the army.

Merthyr Crown Court heard that police became aware of the sale of a piece of night vision equipment on eBay for £2,300 in January 2012 and on investigation found it to be part of the cache stolen from the Dering Lines Infantry Battle School in Brecon.

That eBay account was registered to Jack Carroll, 28, a childhood friend of Barratt's.

When arrested Carroll, of Croxteth Drive, near Sefton Park, claimed he had bought the item from a man in a pub for £100.

Nick Gedge, prosecuting, said both men travelled together to Brecon to carry out the theft and spoke of a "high degree of planning".

He said: "It was the sort of equipment about which there is concern about them falling into the wrong hands.

"These were hi-tech, high quality pieces of equipment that should not be in any other but military hands."

The court heard that Barratt had been at the Brecon school between October and November 2011 on a platoon sergeant battle course.

He had returned to the school on November 14 to complete the course but on November 19, the weekend of the theft, his Volkswagen Passat was traced on its journey by the number plate recognition system from his base to Brecon at midnight and back north.

Barratt, who admitted theft, was to later claim he had travelled the distance to establish whether he was due to attend a further course.

Alexander Greenwood, defending Barratt, said his client had "ruined his life by virtue of his conduct on one night".

He said: "He has been exceptionally stupid and it was a decision he will live with and regret for the rest of his life."

Carroll was jailed for a year after admitting theft. Andrew Davies, defending, said his client did not seek to apportion blame.

A third man, Luke Hirst, 28, of Sandy Lane, Garden City, Deeside, admitted handling stolen goods after placing night vision equipment for sale on a hunting website.

Judge Patrick Curran, QC, jailed him for eight months, suspended for two years.

He will also have to pay £3,000 compensation.
