A Dublin man has appeared in court charged with stealing more than €2,000 from a takeaway.
David Larkin (40) has been ordered not to go within 50 metres of Old Bawn Shopping Centre in Tallaght where the alleged robbery took place.
Judge John Lindsay remanded Mr Larkin on bail to a date in October for DPP’s directions on the charge.
The accused, with addresses at Rossfield Park and Allenton Gardens in Tallaght, appeared before Tallaght District Court charged with robbery.
The alleged incident took place at Apache Pizza at Old Bawn Shopping Centre in Tallaght on Sunday morning.
It is alleged Mr Larkin entered the takeaway at around 12.20am and stole €2,535 from the cash till.
Garda Stephen Murray said there were no objections to bail, subject to conditions.
Judge Lindsay remanded Mr Larkin on bail in his own bond of €300.
As part of his bail conditions, he must reside at Allenton Gardens in Tallaght, sign on daily at Tallaght Garda Station and observe a nightly curfew between 10pm and 8am.
Judge Lindsay also ordered that gardai are at liberty to call to his home during the hours of curfew.
