A kitchen porter who was asked by acquaintances to sell a set of stolen tires and split the profits was angry that the other men had got him into trouble, a court heard.

gron Matoshi, 42, should have asked more about the tires, but he believed the men when they said they were his own.

He was caught after the real owner saw the tires for sale online, contacted gardaí and arranged a meeting to buy them.

Judge John Brennan used the probation act and said Matoshi had learned a valuable lesson.

The defendant, of Castleview Park in Swords, admitted handling stolen property on March 31, 2021.

Garda Sharon O’Connell told Swords District Court that the owner of a set of stolen tires worth €400 saw them for sale on a website and arranged to meet the buyer.

He and a friend met Matoshi in a McDonalds car park in Balbriggan who had the tires in the boot of his car.

Gda O’Connell spoke to Matoshi who had no explanation as to how he got the tyres.

Defense attorney Ray Kavanagh said Matoshi is originally from Albania.

Three days before this incident, he met some men from his community who gave him tires to sell and said they could split the profit.

Matoshi should have asked more questions and what he did was stupid, he said.

Mr Kavanagh also said the defendant was no longer in contact with the men.
