An 18 year old woman who stole an iPhone from a beauty supply store in Letterkenny has been given the Probation Act.
Samaroa Tinichigiu, of 14 Hazelbrook Crescent, appeared at Letterkenny District Court today.
The court heard that the accused entered a back room of Jules Hair and Beauty Supplies at Rossview Business Park in Letterkenny on July 12th last.
The accused was later identified and admitted stealing the phone which was valued at €400 and which was later recovered.
Solicitor Patsy Gallagher said his client had been born in Romania but was living here since she was two years old.
He said she had just completed her Leaving Cert and had no money and simply stole the phone to sell it on.
The court heard she had no previous convictions.
Judge Paul Kelly adjourned the case until November 27th for a probation report.
