A WOMAN has admitted handling stolen goods at Calderdale Magistrates’ Court.

Kristy Fell, 30, was caught after listing goods stolen from a builders’ yard on Ebay.

The owner, Stephen Rorrison, spotted the goods worth £630, on the online auction site and bid. When he won, he arranged to meet Fell to pay cash for the levelling laser and glue gun before telling police.

When they searched her house on May 31, they also found a Sony laptop, which had been reported missing from a car.

Simon Broad, representing Fell, said she had turned her life around since the offences which happened more than a year ago and had begun voluntary work.

The case was adjourned for a pre-sentence report to be prepared.

Mum-of-two Fell will return to the court for sentencing on July 25.
