A man accused of stealing more than €25,000 from an electrical store is facing trial by judge and jury on the charges.

Alan Tormey (34) is alleged to have taken the cash over a three-week period last year.

He was served with the book of evidence when he appeared on bail before Blanchardstown District Court.

The accused, of Townspark Manor, Kells, Co Meath, is facing more than 10 counts of theft from DID Electrical in Blanchardstown.

Judge David McHugh gave Mr Tormey the formal alibi caution. Defence solicitor Michael Staines and one junior counsel were assigned on free legal aid.

Judge McHugh also ordered a video copy of an interview conducted by gardai with Mr Tormey be handed to his solicitor.

Mr Tormey has not yet indicated a plea to the charges.
