A man with seven outstanding bench warrants was caught by Donegal Gardai after reports that he was acting suspiciously near a petrol station at Bridgend.gavel1

Edward Hanrahan was caught by Gardai in a field after he tried to escape when they approached him on November 29th last.

Hanrahan initially gave his name as Jim Herrity with an address in Limerick.

He was arrested and taken to Buncrana Garda Station where it was discovered he had given a false name.

He was charged under Section 107 of the Road Traffic Act for giving a false name.

Solicitor Frank Dorrian told Letterkenny District Court yesterday the reason for Hanrahan giving a false name was because he had those seven outstanding bench warrants.

He said his client had been in custody since and now wanted to face all the charges and get on with his life.

He was 23 years old and was married with two children.

He was born in Louth but had spent much of his life in Dublin after he was sixteen years old.

Jobless Hanrahan said he hoped to get work as a labourer.

Judge Paul Kelly fined Hanrahan €200.
