A 30-year-old man was arrested on Wednesday after allegedly robbing a driver at gunpoint with a kitchen knife.

An older man who was accused of robbing a shop on a Saturday has been granted conditional bail by the court.

Police in Drogheda, who took Karl Kenny into custody on Tuesday, are charging him with a theft and possession of an offensive weapon. Kenny is looking at 20 years in prison if convicted.

Gda Cathal Sheridan testified that he arrested the defendant in Marian Park on November 20th and charged him at 4.46pm, following his arrest. He answered no questions after his caution.

If you or someone you love has been accused of a crime, it’s important to have the right legal counsel. With 16 January as a deadline for DPP directions, Mr Kenny can be safely released and focus on his personal life.

Not many people know that if they are charged and released on bail, they have to agree to certain stipulations. These conditions include sign-in at Station Heights, Dundalk, between 10pm and 7am, have no contact with any witnesses, surrender their passports, be contactable by cell phone and stay out of Dominos in Drogheda.

Police admission was granted.
