COURT APPEARANCE OVER GOREY SUPERMARKET RAID
A man has appeared before a court charged with the robbery of a Gorey supermarket yesterday afternoon.
At about 3.40pm a man wearing a red balaclava entered the supermarket on Coach Road and demanded cash, threatening staff with a knife.
The raider fled with a sum of money but was arrested by Gardai close by a short time later – the cash was also recovered.
The man appeared before a special sitting of Gorey District Court at 9.30 last night where he was charged with the robbery.
He was remanded in custody to appear before Wexford District Court tomorrow morning.
