A CURRA man claimed in Gympie Magistrates Court Monday stealing a set of green P-plates was a "joke" gone wrong.

Julien-Tobias Joos, 19, appeared on a single stealing charge. The court heard on November 22, Joos entered the Curra Matilda Fuel Station with another male, approached the automotive section of the store, removed a set of green P-plates and placed them down the front of his pants covering them with his shirt.

The store's manager intercepted Joos and recovered the P-plates.

Joos pleaded guilty to the theft and was fined $160, referred to SPER, and no conviction was recorded.
