ELVIS impersonator Gary Jordan and his friend Mark Davies have been sentenced for their part in a scam to obtain music equipment over the internet.
Both men were ordered to carry out unpaid community work after they admitted attempting to obtain £2,615.33 worth of goods.
They set up an account in the name of Davies' landlord, and ordered equipment to be delivered to Davies' home in Williams Way, Manea.
But a neighbour discovered that their parcel was addressed to the landlord, and inquiries revealed that a bogus account had been set up in the name of Ross Chapman.

Davies further admitted obtaining two pairs of curtains and two mobile phones worth £239.95 from LX Direct.
Jordan must do 140 hours of work and pay costs and compensation totalling £91. Davies has to work 150 hours and pay £136 in costs and compensation.
Anita Waterman, in mitigation, said Jordan had wanted to upgrade his musical equipment, but his credit rating was not good. Davies said he would obtain the equipment, and Jordan listed what he needed, and planned to pay the instalments.
On behalf of Davies, Martin Newton said the men were planning a joint musical venture, and Davies was confident that the instalment payments could have been met.
