A Limerick city man, who is charged in connection with an alleged stand-off in Cappamore at the weekend, was remanded in continuing custody this Wednesday

Garry Colbert, aged 40, who has an address at Lenihan Avenue, Prospect, was arrested at a house at Mullally Lawn, Cappamore at around 12.30am on Sunday.

It is understood a “stand-off” took place with local gardai who requested the assistance of the armed regional response unit.

Colbert, who was arrested after a taser gun was deployed, was brought before a special sitting of Limerick Court on Sunday after he was charged with producing a knife during the incident.

During a further hearing this Wednesday, Sgt Donal Cronin said directions were being sought from the DPP in relation to the case but that they were not yet available.

Colbert was remanded in custody with consent to bail until November 12, next.
