Two youths have been ordered to stay out of West Cork after they were charged in relation to a series of break-ins to cars and the theft of van in Kinsale earlier this month.

The juveniles appeared before Judge John King at a special sitting of Bandon District Court last night (Friday) in relation to crimes which occurred in Kinsale on April 6 last.

Thieves broke into fifteen cars at Eltin’s Wood and Compass Quay in Kinsale at around 4am on the date in question. 

A van was also stolen in the town on the same night.

Inspector Brian Murphy told the court that gardaí did not have any objection to the two youths obtaining bail in the case that they agreed to comply with a number of stringent bail conditions.

These conditions included that they would stay at their home addresses in Cork city, abide by a 10pm to 7am curfew and that they would not enter West Cork with the exception of court appearances.

Insp Murphy also asked that the youths agree to abide by government guidelines regarding Covid-19 including that they would not venture more than two kilometres from their homes during the Coronavirus outbreak.

The two youths agreed to abide by the conditions set down by the court. 

Judge King remanded both men on their own bonds to appear before Bandon District Court on July 3rd next.
