Sister's theft charges dropped

A sister of Warren and Jeffrey Dumbrell has had robbery charges against her dropped -- after the alleged victim withdrew her complaint.

Leon Dumbrell (32), of Emmett Road, Inchicore, was accused of stealing a pink Nokia mobile phone worth €175 and €42.50 in cash at Francis Street, Dublin in March 2007.

Her trial was postponed last November when the DPP told the court there was a difficulty in serving a witness summons on someone who could give important evidence. The court also heard there was a difficulty with another witness in the case.

Earlier this year, the DPP told the court that gardai were still having difficulty in finding a particular witness. In addition, the injured party wanted to withdraw their complaint against Dumbrell.

A nolle prosequi was entered on all counts in court yesterday.
