Man to face trial over stolen car claims
A man accused of trying to induce another individual into buying a stolen high-powered vehicle has been sent for trial.
Paul McNamara (54) was served with the book of evidence when he appeared on bail before Tallaght District Court.
The accused, of Tullaskeagh Drive, Roscrea, Co Tipperary, was charged with handling a stolen black Ford S-Max at the car park of CityWest Shopping Centre, in Tallaght, on August 25, 2016.
Mr McNamara was also charged with inducing an individual into buying the stolen vehicle for €4,600.
He was further charged with having a false NCT certificate, a false tax disc and a false vehicle registration certificate, all at the CityWest Shopping Centre car park.
A State solicitor said that the book of evidence had been served on the accused, who goes forward to the present sittings of Dublin Circuit Criminal Court.
Judge Patricia McNamara gave the accused the formal alibi caution. She assigned solicitor Tim Kennelly and one junior counsel on free legal aid.
Mr McNamara has not yet indicated a plea to the charges.
