DIRECTIONS are being sought from the DPP in the case of a Moyross man who is accused of stealing cigarettes from a busy shop on the outskirts of the city.
Thomas Williams, aged 28, who has an address at Cliona Park, is charged with burglary – relating to an incident at Ivan’s, Caherdavin in the early hours of last Friday – November 13.
It is alleged that cigarettes, worth around €500, were taken from the store shortly before 2.30am and that Williams was apprehended by gardai a short time later.
Detective Garda Patrick Hogan told Limerick District Court the defendant did not reply when he was formally charged following his arrest.
While there was no garda objection to bail, Sergeant Donal Cronin requested that a number of strict conditions be imposed by the court.
Williams was ordered by Judge Marian O’Leary to stay away from the Ennis Road and Caherdavin areas of the city and he must ‘sign-on’ three times a week at Mayorstone garda station.
The defendant was also ordered to live at his home address in Moyross and he must obey a nightly curfew between 10pm and 8am.
A file is being prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions and the matter was adjourned to January 13, next for directions.
