Attempted robbery accused is denied bail

A MAN accused of an attempted post office robbery has been refused bail after he allegedly told gardai he would remember the registration of a witness's car.

Paul Bewley (43) is alleged to have read the witness's registration out loud twice after he was arrested for allegedly demanding money from staff at Baldoyle post office.

When asked what he was doing, he allegedly told gardai: "I'll remember that, dropping me in the s**t."

Judge Anthony Halpin remanded him in custody to appear before Cloverhill Court tomorrow.

Mr Bewley, of Richmond Cottages, Dublin 1, is charged with attempted robbery at the post office in Carey's Shop, Baldoyle, on December 19. Refusing bail, Judge Halpin said he "had to think of the witnesses".
