Fingal Independent - - NEWS -

A MAN who made off with­out pay­ing for petrol from a petrol sta­tion in Gar­ris­town has been given a month to come up with com­pen­sa­tion.

Kyle Smith (23) drove his Rover car onto the fore­court of Emo Ser­vice Sta­tion in the vil­lage and filled his car up with €40 of petrol. He then drove away with­out mak­ing an at­tempt to pay, Bal­brig­gan District Court heard.

He was later iden­ti­fied as the driver of the car fol­low­ing en­quiries.

Smith, of Clonard Court in Bal­brig­gan pleaded guilty to mak­ing off with­out pay­ing for the fuel at the ser­vice sta­tion on Fe­bru­ary 15th.

The de­fen­dant has sev­eral pre­vi­ous road traf­fic con­vic­tions in­clud­ing two for no in­sur­ance.

De­fence so­lic­i­tor Fiona D’arcy said the €40 for the ser­vice sta­tion is still out­stand­ing but that the de­fen­dant can get it to­gether within two weeks. ‘He is hold­ing his hands up,’ said Ms D’arcy.

Judge John Chea­tle ad­journed the case for four weeks for the de­fen­dant to come up with the com­pen­sa­tion be­fore fi­nal­is­ing the case.
