A young Tallaght man who is set to face several charges of burglary has been released on bail after he was arrested yesterday evening, Thursday, January 30.
Dean Maguire with an address listed as 8 Tree Park Drive, Kilnamanagh, Tallaght, Dublin 24 appeared before Judge Patrick Clyne at Naas District Court today.
Gardai objected to bail.
They allege that throughout the course of yesterday evening, Mr. Maguire was driving a black Saab car which was spotted in Straffan, Mullingar and Celbridge and was linked to a number of alleged burglaries in those places.
They also allege that Mr. Maguire was arrested following a lengthy high-speed chase which ended when he allegedly abandoned the car in the Monread area of Naas before running across the M7 motorway and into local fields.
Garda Paddy O’Leary said it would be alleged that Mr. Maguire was apprehended on foot by Gardai with the assistance of the Garda helicopter.
Gardai objected to bail on the basis of the seriousness of the charges and the possibility that he would re-offend while on bail.
Eventually Judge Clyne granted bail but with strict conditions. Mr. Maguire must sign on daily at Tallaght Garda Station, must observe a curfew between 8pm and 8am, must not enter the counties of Kildare, Wicklow, Meath or Westmeath save for any court appearance, must not drink or get into a car.
A cash lodgement of €2,000 was required with a further bond of €2,000.
