An Armagh man accused of multiple thefts and driving whilst disqualified will face Crown Court proceedings next month.

The 22-year-old was referred to the higher court on two separate charge sheets at Armagh Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday.

On the first, Ryan Cassidy, of Killyfaddy Road, is charged with three counts of theft, driving whilst disquieted and using a vehicle without insurance.

These are alleged to have occurred in April of last year.

The defendant is accused of stealing a Toyota Land Cruiser and trailer to the value of about £10,000, and a Massey Ferguson tractor and assorted tools to the value of £10,000.

He is also alleged to have stolen a trailer, a bale lifter, a bale spike, a power washer and sheep hurdles to the value of £5,000.

On the second, he is accused of burglary, taking a vehicle without authority, criminal damage, driving whilst disqualified and using a vehicle without insurance.

Theses offences are alleged to have occurred on December 7, 2018.

Cassidy is accused of stealing the keys to a Seat Leon from a property on Banbrook Hill, Armagh, before driving off in it.

The defendant is also accused of causing damage to a vehicle on the same date.

Standing in the dock, Cassidy made no objection to the holding of a preliminary enquiry in each case.

Prosecution submitted that based on the papers before the court there was a prima facie case to answer.

Defence barrister Seamus Lannon made no contrary submission.

District Judge Paul Copeland said he was satisfied there was a prima facie case to answer.

Cassidy was remanded in custody to appear at Newry Crown Court on February 6.
