Teenager charged on stolen laptops
A TEENAGER has appeared in court charged with handling electrical equipment worth thousands of euro at his Dublin home.
Sean Carpenter (18) was allegedly caught with laptops, flat screen TVs and a camcorder after gardai searched his Clondalkin home.
A judged ordered Carpenter to stay away from his alleged accomplice.
The defendant appeared before Blanchardstown District Court charged with three counts of handling stolen property at his home at Shancastle Lawns in Clondalkin on February 21.
Among the stolen items which Carpenter is accused of handling are two Apple laptops, a Sony camcorder, two 32in-flat screen TVs, two Dell laptops and a Nintendo Wii console with accessories and four games.
Garda Sergeant Maria Callaghan said gardai had no objections to bail, subject to a number of conditions.
Judge Patrick McMahon remanded Carpenter on bail in his own bond of €200, and ordered him to obey a curfew between 10pm and 8am.
Judge McMahon adjourned the matter to a date in March for DPP's directions and possible further charges.
