Warren sent Dunne nude photos -garda

EAMON Dunne's phone received pictures of a naked woman from the phone of a man allegedly involved in an attempted cash-in-transit van raid, a jury has heard.

Joseph Warren (30) was allegedly staking out Chubb Security base in Stillorgan, when two multi-media messages on his phone were forwarded to Dunne's phone.

The jury heard that the two images had the following text message attached: "That will wake wee up, save that for ye x."

Sarah Skedd, a garda phone analyst, told the court that phone records show that Warren's phone was routing off a phone cell in Sandyford when the messages were sent from his phone to Dunne's at 7.58am and 8am on November 2, 2007.

Warren, of Belclare Crescent, Ballymun, has pleaded not guilty at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court to conspiring to steal cash from Chubb Ireland at Tesco supermarket on the Shackleton Road in Celbridge on November 2, 2007.

Ms Skedd told the court that she analysed the phone records of Warren, Dunne, Alan and Wayne Bradley, Michael Ryan and Jeffrey Morrow to ascertain the "volume of traffic" between the numbers and to identify the cell sites through which the calls and text messages were routed.

She said there was a total of 193 phone calls and text messages between the six phones on the morning of November 2.

The jury heard that the men's phones registered off phone cells from Clonsilla, Mulhuddart, Ballymun, Sandyford, Tallaght, Lucan, Leixlip, Maynooth and Celbridge that morning.

Ms Skedd said a number saved as "Bucko" was found in Warren's phonebook.

Ms Skedd said that in the 10 minutes before all six men were arrested there were four phone calls between Warren's and Alan Bradley's phones, three calls between Warren's and Morrow's phones, and the final call was between Warren's and Dunne's.

The trial continues.
