A Dublin man whom gardai allege was caught “red-handed” in a botched raid on a cash-in-transit van in which €39,000 was stolen has been remanded in custody until his next court appearance.

Dermot O’Callaghan, (48), of Seagull House, Crumlin Road, Dublin, is to appear at the Cloverhill District Court on Tuesday, charged in connection with the armed robbery of a G4S van on Cork Street in Dublin at 7:40am on Friday.

Judge Patrick Clyne granted him bail on condition that he posts a personal bond of €10,000 as well as €20,000 independent surety during a special sitting of the Dublin District Court late this afternoon.

He also set a number of strict bail conditions, including that he sign on daily at the Sundrive Road garda station and that he is contactable 24 hours a day on his mobile and can be located using a GPS tracker on his mobile phone. He was also ordered to surrender his travel documents and abide by a 9pm to 9am curfew.

Mr O’Callaghan said “I’ve nothing to say” when he was charged and cautioned at the Kevin Street garda station, the court heard.
