A man admitted stealing and pawning a laptop belonging to his brother.
Dominic Harris, of Dysart Road in Grantham said he took the laptop to Cash Converters because he needed money for food. Chris Pye-Smith, defending, said Harris intended to buy back the laptop once he had some money.
Harris, 32, was fined £65 and ordered to pay compensation of £37.50 and a £15 surcharge. He was spared costs.
