A Bunbury man convicted of eight counts of receiving stolen property was sentenced to 12 months’ imprisonment on Monday.

Anthony James Owen Sefonte, 29, faced Bunbury District Court in custody.

A sentenced prisoner, Sefonte pleaded guilty to the charges which related to receiving stolen property worth more than $15,000 in 2015.

The court heard a police search warrant executed on Sefonte’s South Bunbury home in October 2015 uncovered furniture and other household items, fishing gear, tools, iPads, a camera and two driving licenses.

The property had all been reported stolen during earlier burglaries in Bunbury.

Counsel for Sefonte said his client had been using methylamphetamine at the time of the offending, but was now “well on the road to rehabilitation”.

Sefonte will be eligible for parole after six months.
