Man accused of attempted robberies in Limavady was further remanded in custody at Ballymena Court

Ballymena Magistrates Court

A man with a Limavady address who is accused of possessing a knife with intent to commit robbery and two charges of attempted robbery was further remanded in custody on Thursday.

Conor Tyrone Clarence (29), of Ballyclose Street, is alleged to have tried to rob cash from both DV8 at Main Street in Limavady and Craigs Service Station in the town, on Saturday June 23.

He is also charged with possession of an offensive weapon – a knife – with intent to commit robbery and resisting a police officer in the execution of his duty.

When the defendant first appeared at Coleraine Magistrates Court on Monday June 25 a defence lawyer said there was no immediate application for bail as enquiries were ongoing about getting an alternative address for the defendant.

He said a bail application was expected to be made at Ballymena Magistrates Court on June 28.

At Ballymena Court today a defence lawyer said “due to unforeseen circumstances” a bail address was no longer suitable.

The defendant, who appeared via video link from prison, was further remanded in custody and the case adjourned to Coleraine Magistrates Court on July 2.
