TWO women have admitted stealing thousands of euros in cash and stock from a Dublin city centre shop.

Nicoleta Costineanu (29) and Maria Talmaciu (28) both had their cases adjourned for sentencing when they appeared in Dublin District Court.

The thefts from Marks & Spencer happened in September last year.

The accused women, both of the same address at Goldenbridge Terrace, Inchicore, are charged with multiple theft counts.

Ms Costineanu admits stealing €5,710 worth of stock and €1,902 in cash from Marks & Spencer, Grafton Street.


The five thefts, totalling €7,612, took place between September 7 and 30 last.

Her co-accused admits four counts - stealing stock and cash totalling €5,692 - all on dates between September 7 and 17.

A State Solicitor said the DPP was consenting to the case being sent to Dublin Circuit Criminal Court on signed pleas of guilty.

Judge Michael Coghlan then read out the charges to the defendants, who both said they were pleading guilty.

He returned the defendants to the Circuit Court for sentence on all charges. The judge granted free legal aid to cover one solicitor and one barrister.

The accused were remanded on continuing bail to appear in court again on Friday.
