A woman has been charged with stealing confectionery worth €2,500.

Catriona Coyle (35) had the case against her adjourned at Blanchardstown District Court.

Ms Coyle, of Landen Road, Ballyfermot, is charged with stealing €2,500 worth of confectionery at Griffeen Glen Drive, Lucan.

She is also charged with causing criminal damage to a car passenger door window at the same place, as well as being drunk in public and causing a breach of the peace.

Ms Coyle is further charged with stealing a Nissan Primera car key at Foxborough Place, Lucan, and having a screwdriver with intent to commit a theft, all on March 2 last year.

Judge David McHugh accepted jurisdiction in the case after Sgt Mary Doherty told him the value of the goods allegedly stolen. She also said the value of the alleged damage was €140.

The judge had ordered disclosure of prosecution documents to the defence.


Ms Coyle's solicitor Valerie Buckley also asked for any available CCTV evidence to be disclosed.

However, no disclosure had been provided by the prosecution since the judge made the order. He granted an adjournment to a date next month.

He said any further adjournments would be peremptory against the State, meaning the case could be struck out if progress is not made.
