A Galway man accused of knowingly being in possession of stolen vehicles at his home has been sent forward for trial.
The Galway District Court heard on Monday how Keith McHugh (31 ) with an address at Stonepark, Caherlistrane, Galway, faces two counts of being in possession, without authority or excuse, of stolen property, to wit a white Nissan Primastar and a black BMW X5, knowing that the property was stolen or was reckless as to whether they were stolen at Stonepark, on June 4, 2009, contrary to Section 18, of the Criminal Justice (Theft and Fraud ) Act.
Sgt Paul Duanne gave evidence of serving the book of evidence on the accused man on the morning of the court sitting.
Inspector Sean Glynn told the court that the Director of Public Prosecutions has consented to the accused being returned for trial at the next sittings of the Galway Circuit Criminal Court commencing February 22.
After giving McHugh the alibi warning Judge Mary Fahy ordered that McHugh be returned for trial and he was remanded on continuing bail of €500 with no conditions attached.
