The Criminal Courts of Justice in Dublin, where a Longford man charged in connection to an attempted break in at a house in Longford was remanded in custody

A well known Longford burglar has been remanded in custody after appearing in court yesterday charged with an attempted break-in at a house in the county town earlier this week.

As exclusively revealed by the Leader yesterday, the man was brought to the Courts of Criminal Justice (CCJ) in Dublin on Wednesday less than 24 hours after his arrest and subsequent detention in connection to an incident in Longford town.

That occurred at a property located along the St Mel's Road area of the town when a shed at the rear of a two storey house was allegedly interfered with.
