The DPP has been given six weeks to complete a book of evidence for the trial of a mother-of-one allegedly caught red-handed bringing €50,000 worth of stolen jewellery into a cash-for-gold shop in Tallaght.

Kathleen Kiely (30), from Lymington Avenue, London, was charged with possession of stolen property at Main Street, Tallaght, last January 25.

She and a co-accused were charged with hand-ling stolen property and refused bail at Dublin District Court the following day.

Ms Kiely was later granted High Court bail and appeared again at the district court.


Judge Bryan Smyth remanded her on continuing bail to appear again in six weeks for a book of evidence to be completed by the prosecution.

At an earlier bail hearing, Det Gda Redmond O'Leary of the Drugs and Organised Crime Bureau said it was alleged that the accused was in possession of more than €50,000 worth of gold jewellery.

It was believed the jewellery was taken in the course of a burglary, with more than €100,000 worth already recovered by gardai and the same amount still outstanding.
