Tesco thief was hiding in bushes
A LATVIAN man, who was found hiding in bushes by gardaí appeared at this week’s sitting of the District Court.
Ainars Saleanieks with an address at the Celtic Inn Hostel, 7/10 Gardiner Street, Dublin 1, pleaded guilty to theft at Tesco in Greystones on September 15.
Garda Brian Burns told the court Saleanieks along with another man entered the Tesco store and stole two bottles of Brandy.
When the gardaí were called they found the pair hiding in bushes close to the store.
The court heard Saleanieks has been in Ireland for four years and until September was in full-time employment in construction but work ran out and he then found it difficult to get social welfare.
Judge Murrough Connellan adjourned the matter to November 16 to see if he comes before the attention of gardaí again.
