APACHE PIZZA resizedA TALLAGHT man arrested in connection with a robbery at a pizza shop on Sunday was granted bail by Tallaght Court.

Judge John Lindsay granted David Larkin bail with a number of conditions, including that he must stay at least 50 metres away from Old Bawn shopping centre.

Larkin, aged 40, with addresses at Allenton Gardens and Rossfield Estate, both in Tallaght, is charged with robbing €2,535 in cash from the till at Apache Pizza, Old Bawn Shopping Centre, Tallaght, on September 6, 2015.

Garda Stephen Murray told the court that he arrested Larkin at 1.10am on Sunday last on Bohernabreena Road for the offence of robbery.

He said Larkin was brought to Tallaght Garda Station and was questioned. Garda Murray added that at 6.15pm on Sunday he was released for the purposes of charge. He was later charged and made no reply.

Larkin’s solicitor, Michael Hennessy, told Judge Lindsay that bail conditions had been agreed with Garda Murray.

He said the agreed bail conditions were that Larkin sign on daily at Tallaght Garda Station, that he reside at his address at Allenton Gardens, that he observe a curfew from 10pm to 8am, that he stay away from Old Bawn Shopping Centre and that he have no contact, directly or indirectly with the injured party or any witness. 

Garda Murray said that Allenton Gardens was 100 metres away from the shopping centre. Judge Lindsay suggested that Larkin stay at least 50 metres away from the shopping centre.

Garda Murray asked for a remand of six weeks for DPP directions. Judge Lindsay released Larkin on his own bail of €300 and subject to the above bail conditions and remanded him for six weeks for DPP directions.
