Gardaí investigating a burglary at a shop in Bunclody brought a couple of suspects before Judge John Coughlan last week, after they were arrested many miles away in County Kildare.

The break-in at Phil Murphy's in Irish Street (formerly Whelan's) was followed by the arrest of the pair by officers from the National Bureau of Criminal Investigation engaged on Operation Fiacla at Monread in Naas.

A special sitting of the District Court convened in Naas on July 2. Accused of having €2,300 worth of stolen tobacco was 38-year-old Edward Connors of 7 Castleraven, Nurney in County Kildare.

He was further charged with possession of articles intended for use in burglary, including nail bars, screwdrivers, balaclavas and an angle grinder.

Connors was remanded in custody to appear at Cloverhill Court on July 9. Also brought before the court in Naas was a 17 year old male, too young to be identified in newspaper reports.

The teenager was allowed bail and told to return to court on July 18.
