THIS is the Dublin man who is accused of handling the stolen keys of a high-powered car.

Andrew Allen (38) has been ordered to stay away from the Dublin 4 and Dublin 6 areas, particularly Leeson Park, Leeson Street and Dartmouth Square, for the duration of the trial.

Judge John O'Neill adjourned the matter to November for DPP's directions on the charge.

The accused, of Harcourt Street, Dublin 2, appeared before Dublin District Court charged with handling stolen property.

The offence allegedly took place at Old Cabra Road, Dublin 7 on July 28 last.

It is alleged that he handled an electrical key to a BMW car.

The court heard that gardai had no objection to bail, subject to a number of conditions.

As part of his bail conditions, Mr Allen must reside at Harcourt Street and sign on three times a week at Pearse Street Garda Station.

He must also stay out of the Dublin 4 and Dublin 6 areas, particularly Leeson Park, Leeson Street and Dartmouth Square.

The court heard Mr Allen is facing the possibility of further charges and gardai asked for a 10-week remand for DPP's directions.

Defence solicitor Matthew de Courcy said Mr Allen is unemployed and on social welfare and Judge O'Neill assigned Michael Kelleher on free legal aid.
