A MAN accused of fraudulently removing more than €25,000 from someone else's bank account appeared before Enniscorthy District Court on Wednesday.

Brought to the courthouse in Ardcavan by Garda Denis Dunbar was Nicholas Doyle, with an address at 3 Mount George, George's Street, Wexford. The Garda gave formal evidence of arresting Doyle and putting 17 charges to him. The court was told that the accused made no reply to any of the charges.

Doyle stood accused of stealing a Bank of Ireland chequebook belonging to Francis O'Brien at Ballina in Ballymurn on some date unknown between January one and April 30. He was further charged with cashing cheques in the credit union office at Anne Street in Wexford.

The charges related to various dates in January, February, March and April of this year, and the amounts allegedly involved varied from €650 up to €3,560. The total was €25,260.

In court, Garda Dunbar suggested that an adjournment should be granted to allow the defendant take legal advice and no objection was raised to the granting of bail.
