Stolen jewellery of 'sentimental value'
A 21-YEAR-OLD Bridgetown man charged with the unlawful possession of drugs has had his case adjourned for the preparation of a Probation and Welfare report.
Aidan Lynch, of 46 Hazelwood, Bridgetown, was before Wexford Court charged with the unlawful possession of drugs for sale or supply at 13 Hazelwood, Bridgetown, on August 31, 2012. He was further charged with burglary at Mulrankin, Bridgetown, on September 2, 2012.
Garda Oliver Daly said on September 2, 2012, the defendant went to the home of Ann Winters where he took jewellery to the value of €200. The property was not recovered.
Defence Solicitor, Ed King, said the defendant had not come to the adverse attention of Gardai since these offences. He had received a previous sentence for the possession of a knife that he has served. There is nothing else pending, he added.
Such items of jewellery would be of great sentimental value to the woman, said Judge Patrick Clyne. They would be great value on a car boot sale but would be of more value to the injured party.
The defendant is now addressing the issues and attending the Cornmarket Project on a weekly basis, said Mr. King.
Judge Clyne said he would adjourn the cast to October 1 for a Probation and Welfare report.
