Balbriggan Jewellery Heist Story...............Joseph Richards, 33 St. Canices Square, Finglas in red with William O'Neill in white tee shirt in custody as they arrived at The Swords District Court sitting at Blanchardstown.

FOUR men have appeared in court charged in connection with a smash-and-grab raid at a jewellery store in north county Dublin.

Aaron Black (23), William O'Neill (26), Joseph Richards (22) and Gary Duddy (22) have been warned to stay away from the shop owner for the duration of the case.

They must also stay out of the Balbriggan area.

Judge Dermot Dempsey adjourned the case to Cloverhill District Court on Thursday.

The four appeared before Swords District Court yesterday charged in connection with a robbery at Goldsmith Jewellers, Drogheda Street in Balbriggan last Friday.

It is alleged that the men entered the shop late on Friday evening, threatened staff and caused extensive damage to the store.

They allegedly escaped with a large quantity of jewellery, but were arrested a short time later by gardai on the M1 and the jewellery was recovered.

In relation to Black, Duddy and Richards, gardai said they had no objection to bail subject to conditions.

Black, of Finn Eber Fort in Finglas, was remanded on bail to appear before Cloverhill court on Thursday after his grand-father lodged a cash surety of €1,000.

Richards, of St Canice's Square, and Duddy, of Barnamore Park, both in Finglas, were remanded in custody with consent to bail in their own bonds of €100 with an independent surety of €1,000 cash.

Black, Duddy and Richards must sign on daily at their local garda station and obey a curfew between 11pm and 7am.

They have also been ordered to stay out of the Balbriggan area.

O'Neill, of Durrow Road in Crumlin, did not apply for bail.

He was remanded in custody until Thursday.
