A young man has been sent for trial charged with handling a stolen car worth around €15,000.

Karl Burke (27) had a book of evidence served on him at Blanchardstown District Court.

He is accused of handling a stolen silver Ford Mondeo at The Park, Carrickmines Shopping Centre.

He is further charged with using a false vehicle registration certificate at the same location.

The offences are alleged to have happened on October 30, 2014.

A state solicitor told Judge David McHugh that the book of evidence was ready and the DPP was consenting to Mr Burke being returned for trial to the next sittings of Dublin Circuit Criminal Court.

Amended

The charge was amended to state that the value of the car was approximate.

Judge McHugh gave the accused the formal warning that he must provide details of any alibi he intends to rely on in his trial to the prosecution within 14 days.

He ordered disclosure to the defence of the video of Mr Burke's garda interview.

The accused, with an address at Oatfield Lawn, Clondalkin, has not yet indicated how he intends to plead to the charges.

Judge McHugh remanded him on bail under existing terms, to appear in the circuit court on a date later this month.
