A  man accused of entering a Co Armagh nail salon as a trespasser with intent to steal has appeared in court.

The 55-year-old’s barrister stated that no bail application was being made on behalf of his client as no address was currently available.

Damien Joseph Young, of no fixed abode, appeared charged with burglary with intent to steal at Armagh Magistrates’, sitting at Newry, on Tuesday, via videolink from police custody.

As the charge was read, it was heard that the defendant was accused of entering the Lurgan Nails & Spa on Market Street in the town with intent to steal on August 23.

Young confirmed that he understood the charge and was connected to the same by a constable.

Defence barrister Dean Mooney made no question to the connection and informed the court that bail was not being sought at this juncture.

He explained: “Mr Young is currently of no fixed abode; although attempts have been made by his solicitor it had not been possible to find a bail address.”

Deputy District Judge Peter Prenter remanded the defendant in custody to appear before at Craigavon Magistrates’  Court on September 3.
