A man accused of attempting to rob a Portadown chemist is to face Crown Court proceedings.
He appeared for the purposes of a preliminary enquiry (PE), the legal process during which a case is referred to the higher court.
The 54-year-old is charged with attempted robbery and possession of an offensive weapon, namely a knife, with intent to commit an indictable offence.
The defendant is accused of attempting to rob the chemist, located on West Street, of sleeping tablets on April 24 this year.
He is also accused of possessing the knife with intent on the same date.
Prosecution submitted that based on the papers before the court there was a prima facie case to answer.
Defence counsel made no contrary submissions.
District Judge Bernie Kelly, satisfied there was a prima facie case to answer, committed Lynas into custody to appear before Craigavon Crown Court on October 19 for arraignment.
