VILLAGER Callum Rory Novak has been fined for handling stolen goods.

Novak, 22, of Green Stile, Medstead, near Alresford, had denied the charge but was found guilty after a trial at Basingstoke Magistrates Court of handling power tools in Alton, belonging to Kevin King, last November.

Magistrates fined him £200 and ordered he pay a £32 victim surcharge and £200 prosecution costs.
