John McCormac, 54 Beechwood Drive, Drogheda, pleaded guilty to offences arising out of a break-in to the credit union building at Main Street on June 26, 2010.

The court heard that a window was smashed and a pick axe handle found in the yard. The burglary alarm had alerted gardaí to the break-in but they found no one around. However, they followed a vehicle and observed a number of objects being thrown from it. The defendant was a front seat passenger in the vehicle, which was stopped a short distance away. He denied all knowledge of the break-in but a forensic investigation of the clothes he was wearing showed a large number of grass fragments. While nothing was taken in the break-in, the premises was ransacked and €920 of damage was caused.

Mr Dermot Monahan asked for his client to be given time to pay for his share of the compensation. He was on a binge of drugs and alcohol at the time. He was currently doing community service.
