Man charged with fish theft

A 40-YEAR-OLD man, who was arrested for stealing thousands of euro worth of seafood and marine equipment following a boat chase on the Liffey, has been further remanded in custody with consent to bail.

Father-of-one Mark Davis, from Knockmore Avenue, Tallaght, was charged last week with stealing €2,000 of crabs and lobsters and two outboard engines worth €6,000 from Bullock Harbour, Dalkey.

Mr Davis, who made no reply when charged, appeared before Judge Victor Blake at Cloverhill District Court. He was remanded in custody and will face his next hearing on November 4 at Dun Laoghaire District Court.

The accused, who is on disability benefits, has denied taking the engines and directions from the DPP need to be obtained in relation to his trial venue.
