A MAN has appeared before Limerick District Court charged in connection with two alleged aggravated burglaries in Pallasgreen earlier this year.
William Gammell, 27, on An Cuirt, Monard, County Tipperary is charged with entering the home of the Creed family at Ballyluddy, Pallasgreen, as a trespasser and committing burglary on May 31, last.
The accused is also charged with allowing himself to be carried in a stolen jeep at the Creed family home on the same date.
He faces an additional charge of aiding and abetting the commission of a serious offence - namely an aggravated burglary at Sunville House, Pallasgreen - on April 16.
Judge Eugene O’Kelly was told that having been refused bail in the District Court on June 26, Mr Gammell had subsequently been granted bail in the High Court subject to a surety of €2500.
Mr Gammell’s wife was in court to put up the surety to which the state had no objection.
Inspector Seamus Ruane, Roxboro Garda Station, said an “extensive criminal investigation” was ongoing and directions were awaited from the DPP.
Judge O’Kelly remanded Mr Gammell in custody with consent to bail, subject to the surety being approved by the governor of Cork Prison.
Mr Gammell is due to appear before the court again on August 22 for DPP directions.
