A FACTORY worker appeared before Louth Magistrates Court charged with two driving offences and possession of stolen property.
Anthony Williams, 20, from Howdales, South Cockerington, pleaded guilty to riding a moped without third party insurance while banned from driving.
He also pleaded guilty to possession of a stolen mountain bike valued at £99.99 and an emergency window breaker taken from a bus.
Williams was stopped by police in St Bernards Avenue, Louth, on February 28 because the moped he was riding did not have an insurance certificate.
When he was questioned he admitted he was banned from driving.
On March 25 Williams was caught with the stolen mountain bike.
When police searched him they found the emergency window breaker in his pocket.
Defence solicitor Terence Vamplew said Williams bought the mountain bike from a friend of a friend for £10 and suspected it was stolen.
He said Williams also knew the window breaker had been stolen from a school bus.
Williams was given a six month driving ban to be served concurrently with a 16 month ban he was given last year.
He was also given a 12 month community order, ordered to serve 100 hours of unpaid work in the community and pay £110 costs.
