A man charged with shoplifting at a Longford supermarket two weeks ago has been fined €200 by Judge Seamus Hughes.

Vitalij Peleckas, Apartment 7, Swan Lake Drive, Gowna, Cavan was charged with stealing two bottles of gin and tools valued at almost €90 from Aldi, Athlone Road, Longford on October 20 2017.

That alleged offence led Mr Peleckas to be charged under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice (Theft and Fraud Offences) Act 2001.

A fine of €200 was subsequently handed down by Judge Seamus Hughes.
