Prosecutor Richard Whittam told the jury that businessman James McCormick, convicted today of selling fake bomb detectors, bought 300 Golfinder novelty machines for finding golf balls from the US between 2005 and 2006.
The court heard that the Advanced Selection Equipment devices had no scientific basis and were based on a £13 American novelty golf ball finder.
