Christine Griffin, who worked as a book-keeper with a local pharmacy, appeared at Letterkenny District Court this morning.

The 47 year old woman is charged with a total of 31 offenses of theft over a two year period.

Detective Garda Brendan Regan told the court that he arrested Ms Griffin this morning at Newline Road but she made no reply when the charges were put to her.

The court was told that Ms Griffin stole a total of €39,770.30 over a two year period at the pharmacy in Ballybofey.

However, over the past year Ms Griffin, of Carrickmagrath, Ballybofey has paid back a total of €19, 110 of the stolen cash to the company.

Inspector David Kelly said the Director of Public Prosecutions has agreed to dispose of the case on a plea of guilty.

Defense solicitor Patsy Gallagher asked to have the case adjourned until December 17th which Judge Paul Kelly agreed to.
