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 remanded in custody on Monday after appearing at Coleraine Magistrates Court.

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, on Saturday.

He is also accused of resisting a police officer in the execution of his duty.

A police officer said she believed she could connect the accused to the charges.

A prosecution lawyer said the application was to remand the defendant in custody and adjourn the case for four weeks.

A defence lawyer said he had no questions for the police officer and said there was no immediate application for bail as enquiries were ongoing about getting an alternative address for the defendant.

No further details were given to the court.

The defendant was remanded in custody to appear at Ballymena Magistrates Court on Thursday.
