A YOUTH group in Buncrana is celebrating today – after a judge ordered plasma TVs and computer games seized in a garda raid should be given to them.

The application to give them to the Plasma Drop-In Centre was made by barrister Patricia McLaughlin on behalf of the State after a Ballybofey man was convicted of possession of stolen property in a creeper burglar case.

Eddie Crerand, 29, was jailed for three years after the proceeds of up to nine burglaries were found in a caravan he was renting in Clonmany.

But a garda told the court that officers who raided the caravan found more valuable goods which had not been taken in those nine raids.

Efforts to trace owners had proved fruitless and Ms McLaughlin applied for them to be donated to charity.

The items included Playstation games and equipment, TVs and ipods.

Judge John O’Hagan, pictured, granted the request.
