Bray People - - News -

A STINT OF com­mu­nity ser­vice is in the off­ing for two sis­ters from Bray who at­tempted to make off with over €900 worth of stock from the En­nis­cor­thy branch of Dunnes Stores.

Judge William Ham­mill heard how Bar­bara Moore­house (19) and He­len Moore­house (24), both of 1 Wal­cot, Old Con­naught Av­enue, Bray, along with a third fe­male, were in­ter­cepted by store se­cu­rity staff as they left with a suit­case full of clothes. Judge Ham­mill took into ac­count that the pair both had pre­vi­ous con­vic­tions for theft.

He or­dered a pro­ba­tion re­port, with a view to im­pos­ing com­mu­nity ser­vice or­ders for 100 hours work, in lieu of two months be­hind bars.
