Worker to face trial over theft of €82,000 from printing firm

A woman is accused of stealing over €80,000 from a printing company over a two- year period.

Alix Long (32) is facing trial by judge and jury in the Circuit Court after the DPP directed the matter was too serious for the District Court.

Long, with an address at The Crescent, Earls Court, Kill, Co Kildare, appeared before Blanchardstown District Court charged with stealing €82,726, contrary to Section 4 of the Criminal Justice (Theft and Fraud Offences) Act, 2001.


The alleged theft occurred on dates between January 1, 2005 and January 1, 2007, from Snap Printing, Baldonnel Industrial Estate, Naas Road, Clondalkin.

Garda Sgt James Bourke said he arrested Long at her home at 7.55am last Wednesday, and took her to Clondalkin Garda Station where she was charged with the offence.

Sgt Bourke said that Long made no reply to the charge after caution, and she was handed a copy of the charge sheet.

The court heard there was no objection to bail, and Long was remanded on bail in her own bond of €300.

Judge David McHugh adjourned the matter for two weeks.

Long's lawyer said there was no application for legal aid at this time.
