Court told man found standing on top of stolen ATM with a consaw

A 24-year-old south Armagh has appeared in court in Monaghan this afternoon charged in relation to the theft of an ATM at Bessbrook during the early hours of Friday morning.

The accused was charged with causing £12,000 of criminal damage after the cash machine was taken from Gregory’s filling station on the Camlough Road. He was also charged with possessing stolen property.

Before the court was Adam Grant, of St Brigid’s Terrace in Silverbridge.

The court was told by a garda officer that Grant was found during a patrol in the Inniskeen area. It was claimed during the brief hearing that the accused was standing on top of an ATM with a consaw and trying to open it.

An application was made for bail for Grant to live with a relative in County Louth.

But the request was refused at Monaghan District Court.

Judge Denis McLoughlin remanded him in custody to appear again at Monaghan Court on Tuesday.
