Two facing trial over €53k stolen goods case

TWO men accused of handling more than €50,000 worth of stolen electronic equipment have been sent forward for trial.

Daniel McMahon (25) and Paul Casey (44) appeared before Blanchardstown District Court on the charges.

Mr Casey, of Carton Court, Poppintree, and Mr McMahon, of Orchardville Gardens, Belfast, are charged with handling stolen property.

It is alleged that the pair handled €53,000 worth of stolen electronic equipment, the property of Dixons PC World, at Newcastle Road, Lucan, last July 18.

A state solicitor said the book of evidence had been served on the accused, who go forward to the present sittings of Dublin Circuit Criminal Court.

Judge David McHugh gave the accused the formal alibi caution.
