Man denies possessing stolen monkey

A 28-YEAR-OLD man has pleaded not guilty to possessing a stolen monkey worth €1,500.

Paul Murtagh of Birchdale Park, Kinsealy, Co Dublin, and Lighthouse Apartments, East Wall, Dublin 1, denies possession of "one common South American Marmoset".

He allegedly had the animal at Ravensdale Road, East Wall, on October 1 last.

After he entered a not guilty plea to that charge at Dublin District Court, Judge Bryan Smyth remanded him on continuing bail to appear again on January 17 when his hearing will take place.

He had already denied unlawful possession of a stun gun at Marlborough Place, Dublin 1, on October 27, 2009 and will face a district court trial for that alleged offence on January 17 as well.
