Part of a three person shop-lifting outfit in Dundalk

Two Slovakian nationals who Dundalk District Court heard were part of a three person shop-lifting outfit, were each fined €90 last week.

Judge John Coughlan heard that one of the three “de-tagged” the clothing, another pointed it out and the third stole the goods.

Michael Bucko (29) of Chapel Lane, Carrickmacross and Miroslav Sipka (31) of Drummond Etra, Carrickmacross admitted stealing various items of clothing worth €175 from Heaton's, Dundalk Retail Park on April fifth last.

The court heard the factory workers had no previous convictions and had not come to garda attention since.
