Man facing gun charge after house searched
A man is facing a firearms charge after gardai found a pistol under a bed in a west Dublin house.
Sean Smith (20) was allegedly in the house with two other men when it was searched.
The accused, of Hermitage Park, Kilcullen, is charged with possession of a 9mm firearm without a licence on May 21, 2015.
Blanchardstown District Court heard the DPP had directed summary trial in the district court.
Sgt Geraldine McManigan said gardai searched a house under warrant at Lealand Close, Clondalkin, and a firearm was recovered.
Judge David McHugh refused jurisdiction to deal with the charge and adjourned the case to allow the DPP to consider her position.
Mr Smith has yet to indicate a plea.
