A YOUTH accused of stealing €20,000 worth of copper pipes and wiring has been ordered to obey a curfew.

Judge Conal Gibbons told the teenager he was accused of serious offences when the 17-year-old, who is from Co Kildare, appeared at the Dublin Children's Court today.

He had been arrested in Dublin on Tuesday night on foot of a bench warrant issued last month at Drogheda District Court where he faces a charge for theft of pipes and wiring from Wesco Electrical, at the Donore Road Industrial Estate, Co. Louth, on September 30, 2010. He also faces a related motor theft charge.

He agreed to a garda request to impose a curfew from 9pm to 7am on the boy and ordered him to stay away from a named individual.

The teenager, who was accompanied to court by his mother, was ordered to appear again on September 13 at Drogheda District Court.
