A man tried to sell a ukelele which had been stolen from a Blackpool music shop.
Neville Dewhurst, 43, of Raikes Parade, Blackpool, pleaded guilty to handling stolen goods.
He was ordered to pay £80 compensation by Blackpool magistrates who imposed no other penalty.
Martine Connah, prosecuting, said the owner of Electric Avenue, Whitegate Drive, found a ukelele had gone missing from his shop on February 22.
Dewhurst, who was a regular visitor to the music shop, had been in the premises the day the instrument went missing.
Dewhurst told police he had bought the ukelele from a man he met after leaving the music shop and he tried to sell the instrument.
