Garda faces charges he stole more than e500

A Dublin-based garda is accused of stealing more than €500 from several people over a nine-month period.

Daniel Flynn (27) allegedly stole a total of €540 in cash on four separate occasions between October 2008 and August 2009.

Flynn, who is originally from Portlaoise, appeared before Dun Laoghaire District Court, where he was charged with four counts of theft.

He is now living in Dublin and based at Dundrum Garda Station.

He is accused of stealing €400 at Wheatfield estate, Boghall Road, Bray, on October 17, 2008.


He is also facing three further charges of stealing a total of €140 at Carysfort Grove, Blackrock, Co Dublin, between July 6 and August 24, 2009.

Garda Detective Inspector Eamon O'Reilly had previously told the court that the DPP had directed summary disposal of the matter in the District Court.

Flynn's solicitor told the court that he had received all the statements in relation to the allegations against his client.

The matter was adjourned for three weeks to allow Flynn to speak to his legal team.

He was remanded on bail to appear again in October.
