A man accused of the theft of an Audi car purchased it on finance but sold it in Spain after being threatened with a gun, a court has heard.
Luke Tuck, 33, appeared at Norwich Magistrates Court charged with theft of a motor vehicle, namely a black Audi Q7, in August 2018.
The court heard Tuck, formerly of Great Moulton but now of Highfields, Tharston, purchased the vehicle, for about £70,000, on finance from Norwich Audi, paying a £30,000 deposit and then three monthly direct debits before he cancelled them.
Eleanor Sheerin, prosecuting, said Tuck then sold the vehicle in Spain for €16,000.
Tuck admitted theft, which is said to be to the value of £46,402.46, on Wednesday, October 14.
