A young man charged with possession of ammunition has been sent for trial.

Kane McCormack (24) was allegedly caught with 50 rounds of .32 ammunition after detectives stopped and searched a car in west Dublin.

The accused, of Beechfield Heights in Clonee, was charged with possession of the ammunition at Finglas Road in Finglas on November 7 last year.

A State solicitor said the book of evidence was ready and had been served on the accused, who goes forward to the present sittings of Dublin Circuit Criminal Court.

Judge Ann Ryan gave Mr McCormack the formal alibi caution.

Defence lawyer Jennifer Jackson asked that Mr McCormack's next court date not be read out in open court as there was "a threat on his life".

As part of his bail terms, Mr McCormack must carry a mobile phone and inform gardai where he is staying.

The accused has not yet indicated a plea to the charge.
