A promising Brentford FC academy graduate has been found guilty of handling stolen goods.
He denied handling stolen goods but was, on Monday (March 2) at Feltham Magistrates' Court, found guilty of the offence, which took place on the riverside road Strand-on-the-Green. He was fined £500 and ordered to pay £400 in costs, plus a £50 victim surcharge.
Moore, of Trimmer Walk, Brentford, had previously admitted driving without a licence and with no insurance. He did not receive any separate punishment, other than points on his licence, for those offences.
The teenager has been with the Bees since he was seven and is an exciting prospect, having been top scorer for the club's youth team in 2013/14. He signed a three-year contract last August.
He scored and created three other goals in his only competitive appearance for Brentford's first team, which came in the Capital One Cup win over Dagenham and Redbridge that month.
In January, he joined Danish Superliga side FC Midtjylland on loan for the rest of the season.
A Brentford FC spokesman said: "Montell is well aware of the mistake he has made. He has a criminal conviction and the club's reputation has been affected.
"The club has disciplined Montell internally and made it very clear he is on a final warning in relation to his conduct.
"He has made it clear to us how sorry he is and the club will work with him to ensure he does not make such a mistake again."
