Tipperary Teenager Accused Of Targeting Bank Customers

An 18 year old teenager, named as Mr Wesley Maughan, has been charged as part of an ongoing Garda investigation involving the targeting of bank customers, identified as having withdrawn substantial sums of cash from various bank branches in the Munster areas.

The teenager, with an address at Coolnagarra, Burncourt, Cahir, Co. Tipperary, appeared in Cashel District Court here in Co Tipperary and now stands accused of three offences.  Mr Maughan was charged with; (1) the theft of €3,000 in cash; (2) the theft of a Michael Kors handbag, latter valued at €290; (3) criminal damage caused to a motor vehicle in the Lidl Car Park at Bishopstown in Co. Cork, all of which happened on January 18th, 2018,  to the same female victim.

Det Garda Gary Duggan who gave evidence of arrest, charge and caution, informed the court that Mr Maughan had made no reply to any of the three charges, after caution. Gardaí did not object to bail once certain conditions were attached to the accused, including that he sign on daily at Cahir Garda station, Co. Tipperary.

Mr Justice Terence Finn remanded Mr Maughan on bail to appear at Cork District Court on April 4th next.
