A Drogheda man who is charged with possession of a stolen motorbike and setting fire to a stolen car will appear before the High Court at Cloverhill tomorrow for alleged breaches of his bail conditions.
At the Central Criminal Court today, Garda Donal Clarke told Emmett Nolan SC, for the State, that 24-year-old Paul Crosby, of Rathmullen Park in Drogheda, Co Louth, was admitted to bail by the High Court on 24 May last year.

He is also charged with possession of a stolen Volkswagen Polo at Ballymakenny Business Park on 10 May 2019 and of arson by setting the Volkswagen on fire at Yellowbatter, Drogheda, on the same date.

He was arrested at Beechwood Drive in Drogheda last night and the warrant was executed today at the Central Criminal Court where Justice Michael White remanded Mr Crosby to Cloverhill.
Lily Buckley BL, acting for Mr Crosby, told Justice White that her client was "anxious to address the court himself".
