Chemist feared for life

A pharmacist believed she would be shot by a robber carrying what looked like a semi-automatic gun.

Heroin addict William Leddy (34) of no fixed abode and formerly of Pearse Park, Drogheda, was jailed for a total of seven years at Dundalk Circuit Court for twice robbing two chemists in the town on dates between December 2010 and September 2011. He admitted having the imitation gun.

Teen drunk says sorry

A teen drunk who called an ambulance because he had a headache was freed from a week in jail after paying a €200 fine. Patrick Ward (18), of Magheracar, Bundoran, Co Donegal, had been remanded in custody last Friday.

At Sligo District Court he said he was sorry. The judge said the taxpayer paid for the ambulance and Ward probably had no concept or cared what it cost the public.

Dealer avoids jail

A Lithuanian man who arrived in Ireland a few months ago, only to find himself in "poor economic circumstances", has been given a suspended six-month sentence for selling heroin.

At Limerick District Court Tomas Ignotas (19), of Thomond Village, Cratloe Road, Limerick, pleaded guilty to possession of heroin for sale on January 11.
