A MAN who has ’a sheaf of warrants’ has been remanded in custody.
Carl Ryan (45), with an address at Burrwood, Magherinture, Buncrana, appeared before Buncrana District Court via video link from Castlerea prison.
Ryan has been in custody since appearing before Donegal Town District Court on August 19. He was remanded to appear via video at Harristown District Court on August 21 and he was before the latest sitting of Buncrana District Court.
Ryan faces a number of charges, including trespass, producing an article during the court of a dispute, criminal damage, a threat to damage property, being intoxicated in a public place and a breach of the peace.
Ryan is further charged with using threatening, abusive or insulting behaviour on July 10, 2017.
Judge Paul Kelly asked that Ryan provide an address outside of the Burrwood estate.
Ryan’s cousin appeared in court and provided an address at which she said the defendant could reside.
Sergeant Collins sought continuing remand for Ryan in order for the Gardaí to verify the address provided.
Ryan asked that a cash bail bond of €500 be dropped. “I would like the bail money dropped because I can’t get it,” he said.
Solicitor for Ryan, Mr Rory O’Brien, said the cash had not been lodged due to ‘ongoing difficulties’ faced by Ryan,
Judge Paul Kelly lifted the €500 surety and changed it to €250, not cash.
Judge Kelly, noting that he had a ’sheaf of warrants’ before him on the accused, remanded Ryan in custody with consent to bail to appear via video link at Carndonagh District Court on September 15.
