A MAN has been jailed for six burglaries he carried out in the Douglas area of Cork eight years ago.

Cory Bardini was brought before Cork District Court after a period of several years where there had been a warrant for his arrest.

Judge Olann Kelleher was told that Bardini, aged 26, was a passenger in a car in Donegal at the weekend that was stopped at a routine stop and it emerged that the warrant was in place for his arrest.

Inspector Margaret Murrell said the six burglaries occurred in May 2012 at houses in the Douglas area of Cork.

Defence solicitor Eddie Burke said the accused was only 18 when he carried out the burglaries. 

He said that the young man had never been in trouble before that. 

The solicitor said he got into the kitchens of the houses and took food for himself.

Insp. Murrell said that money was also taken during some of the offences.

Bardini now lives at Buncranna, County Donegal, having lived in Pinecroft in Cork back in 2012.

Judge Olann Kelleher said the young man had been uncooperative with the services since that time. 

Mr Burke accepted that the defendant had been very immature.

Judge Kelleher imposed a jail term of four months.

“The only reason it is low is that I am taking into consideration his age at the time,” the judge said.
