A Dublin man has been charged in connection with a house burglary in which a woman's car was allegedly stolen.

William Deans (55) was remanded in custody when he appeared in Dublin District Court following the incident in north county Dublin last Friday.

Mr Deans, with an address at Rutland Cottages, Dublin 1 is charged with burglary and unauthorised taking of a car.

Garda Robert English said he arrested the accused at Ballymun Station at 5.10pm yesterday for the purpose of charge.

He made no reply after caution.

Garda English said he would be objecting to bail, but defence solicitor Aine Flynn said she was not making an application today,

Judge William Hamill granted free legal aid to the accused after there was no garda objection.

Mr Deans, wearing a cream-coloured sweater over a white shirt and navy tracksuit bottoms, remained silent during the brief hearing. He has not yet indicated how he intends to plead to the charges, which are under the Theft and Fraud and Road Traffic Acts.

He will appear in Clovherill District Court on Thursday.
