THIEVES who stole a pair of jeans from an Ely store made their escape and handed the stolen trousers over to Jamie Webb.
But the jeans were not Webb's size or style - so he hid them in a shed at his mother's home, city magistrates heard this week.
Webb, 24, of West End Close, Witchford, admitted receiving the stolen �9.99 jeans on September 25, and was given a 12 month conditional discharge.
Webb and others had been into the Bay Tree store in High Street Passage earlier that day, but the thief later returned and stole the jeans.

"He met up with Jamie Webb and the rest of the group near the Cathedral, Webb was given the jeans with the security tags still on. They were not his style or size; he took them to his mother's property and put them in a shed there. He later took them to the police station."
