A man has appeared in court accused of burgling a top Dublin stockbroking firm's offices.

Oscar Chmielowski (26) was granted bail subject to conditions after he was charged over an alleged break-in at Davy Stockbrokers in the city centre.

Judge Bernadette Owens remanded him on bail at Dublin District Court for the directions of the DPP to be made available.

Chmielowski, of The Gab-les, Grangeview, Clondalkin, is charged with one count of burglary.

It is alleged he entered the stockbrokers' offices on Dawson Street as a trespasser on Aug- ust 25 and committed a theft.

A garda sergeant gave evidence of the accused's arrest, charge and caution by means of a certificate handed into court.

The accused was in custody, but there was no garda objection to bail subject to conditions, the sergeant said.

Lodgement

These include the accused signing on at Store Street Garda Station on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. He must also stay out of the Dublin 2 area.

Defence solicitor Michael French confirmed these conditions were agreeable to the accused.

The sergeant said directions were not available yet and a file was being prepared for the DPP.

Judge Owens granted bail in the defendant's own bond of €200, with no cash lodgement required.

She assigned free legal aid after Mr French submitted a statement of the accused's financial means and said he was not working. There was no garda objection.

The judge asked Mr Chmielowski if he had signed the bail bond after it was handed to him and he replied: "Yes."

She remanded him on bail to appear in court again on a date next month. The accused has not yet indicated how he intends to plead to the charge.
