Daires Willows Armagh

A Caledon man who pleaded guilty to attempting to burgle an Armagh house will learn his fate next month.

Prosecution stated a previous charge regarding the theft of a hatchet which had been levelled against the 22-year-old had been withdrawn.

Michael Joseph Coulter, of Church Hill Cottages, pleaded guilty to attempted burglary with intent to steal at Armagh Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday.

Court previously heard that the offence relates to an incident at Daires Willows area on the morning of March 21.

District Judge Paul Copeland stated: “I see you have one prior conviction for handling stolen goods from when you were a youth.

“This is a serious matter and I am going to require a pre-sentence report.”

Coulter was released on continuing bail until July 23 when the case will be back before the court for sentencing.
