A YOUNG woman has been given an 18 month probation order after stealing a make-up bag valued at £300 from an Enniskillen pub.
Amy Barron (21) of Carnmore Lodge, Enniskillen appeared at Enniskillen Magistrates Court on Monday charged with theft, common assault and resisting police.
The court heard how on January 23rd 2018, Barron stole a make up bag to the value of £300 when she was in Granny Annies earlier in the evening.
She then went to Devenish Bar in Enniskillen, and the owner of the bag also came into the bar and noticed that Barron had taken the make up bag.
There was an altercation which resulted in Barron being arrested on Darling Street and she became aggressive, resisting police. When interviewed she did not answer any questions.
Defence solicitor Michelle McVeigh told the court that her client had engaged with alcohol and had little recollection of the incident and she had formed her knowledge from the CCTV.
Ms McVeigh also added that was a theft by finding and Barron believed the make up bag to be hers before apologising on behalf of Barron to the victims and the police. The make up bag was recovered and there was no financial loss to the injured party.
Ms McVeigh also told District Judge Liam McStay that the defendant is now abstaining from alcohol and she has engaged in a ten week Prince’s Trust programme.
District Judge Liam McStay gave Barron an 18 month probation order, advising her to participate fully in any programme which probation suggests, and acknowledged that she was making efforts on her own behalf, and warned her not to return to court.
