Man admits stealing a dog

A 26-year-old man has admitted stealing a dog among other offences which arose out of a domestic situation.

The defending solicitor for Jamie Donnel Geddis, of Dingwell Park, Lurgan, said his client intended to plead guilty to all matters. One of the charges had to be put to the defendant - that on September 1 this year he stole a dog.

Geddis elected for the case to be dealt with at Craigavon Magistrates’ Court and pleaded guilty to the offence.

The other charges he faces are four assaults on four different police officers, attempted criminal damage to a front door at Garland Court, Lurgan, disorderly behaviour, resisting a constable and criminal damage to a fence.

The solicitor said it was a domestic situation.

District Judge, Mrs Bernie Kelly, adjourned sentencing until November 16 for a pre-sentence report.
