Raid charge teen bailed

A TEENAGER charged over a house raid in north Dublin has been released on bail.

A house on Botanic Avenue had been ransacked on the night of April 27 and the occupant, a 21-year-old man, was brought out in his own car to withdraw money from a nearby cash machine.

The 16-year-old west Dublin boy, who cannot be named because he is a juvenile, is charged with robbing an ipod, a DVD player, a set of speakers and a mobile phone from the house.

He had been remanded in custody but Judge Timothy Lucey heard yesterday that the High Court had since allowed bail if his address meets with Garda approval.
