Oh you want to sell stolen stereos? Oh here’s the cops.. See if they are intersted

By bennyboi - 2 October 2008 20

My old man was in Fyshwick today picking up some new doors for the house when a skinny caucasion male approached, asked him if he was interested in buying some stereo equipment he “came accross and needs to sell”.. My old man was walking to the van and guess who pulls up behind him less than 2 seconds later? The po’po!

I saw some articles about this shifty bugger around town.. So lets just say he’s been busted!

Good work officers! 😀

What’s Your opinion?

Bit of a difference. He actually bought the fireworks, right? I don’t think it’s too illegal to stand near a van, look at a stereo, say “no thanks”, then go report the details to police.

I was actually referring to the comment about outing a drug dealer.

But,
if you are holding the unit when the police rock up, regardless of whether you intend to buy it, it would look pretty bad.

Good work on the Cops finally cathching these people. Hopefully they have enough evidence to prosecute these low lifes.

Surely you guys don’t believe these were the only scammers doing it do you?

So conspiracy to commit a felony is no longer a crime

For the old man to be done, a transaction would actually have to take place and he would actually need to walk away with the stolen equipment.

And then argue in court that, despite evidence suggesting you were there to purchase illegal or stolen goods, you intended to not.

So if I was attempting to pretend to purchase drugs in order to out a dealer – and I had no advocation from any law enforcement agencies – is my word that I was doing it to out a dealer going to stand up in court?

Of course not.

reminds me of the guy who wanted to prove that you could buy illegal fireworks in canberra. He did so, and was promptly arrested.

well done.

Yeh but you just claim that you were aware the police were after the people involved, thought you could go to the van to have a look – get a description and location of the van, note any distinguishing features, note the number plate and and report it immediatly to the police.

They wouldn’t even think of prosecuting you, as police somewhat rely on information from the public. They wouldn’t want to prosecute people with information otherwise no one would ever come upfront.

Good work on the Cops finally cathching these people. Hopefully they have enough evidence to prosecute these low lifes.

Sounds like a sting – hope your old man does not get done for “attempt to procure stolen property “(Pretty good legal jargon eh ?)

jakez 9:31 am 02 Oct 08

So whose van exactly was your old man walking to?
