‘I HAVEN’T been hid­ing for the past ten years. No­body came looking for me,’ ex­plained a Wick­low man who ap­peared in court last week on charges dat­ing back eight years.

A bench war­rant was ex­e­cuted last week by Gar­daí for De­clan Rus­sell of 25 Seav­iew Heights.

The charges of un­law­ful pos­ses­sion of cannabis, be­ing drunk in pub­lic and threat­en­ing and abu­sive be­hav­iour date back to 2000.

‘It is not up to the courts to go looking for you,’ Judge Mur­rough Con­nel­lan told the de­fen­dant.

Rus­sell replied that at the time his so­lic­i­tor checked the Garda sta­tions and there were no sum­mons for him.The judge re­manded Rus­sell in cus­tody with con­sent to bail of €750 to Wick­low District Court on Oc­to­ber 28.
