A CLEANER, who stole nearly €2,000 from a safe in a hair-dressing salon to pay for cocaine, is going into residential drug treatment, Tallaght Court has heard.
The court had heard that on May 27, 2015, Ciara Farrelly was working as a cleaner in Peter Mark in The Square when she opened the safe and took €1,790 in cash. She also stole a staff member’s watch worth €275 and €30 from Style Club where she was also working as a cleaner.
Farrelly, aged 27, with an address at Rossfield Park, Tallaght, had pleaded guilty to stealing €30 in coinage and stealing a Guess watch worth €275 from The Style Club, The Square, Tallaght, on May 27, 2015.
She had also pleaded guilty to stealing €1,790 in cash from Peter Mark, The Square, on the above date.
The court had heard that Farrelly had been using cocaine and heroin and is now on methadone.
Farrelly was before Judge Patricia McNamara for a probation report.
Farrelly’s counsel said his client had got a place on a drug treatment course. He said Farrelly’s doctor had an accident and had not been able to prescribe her methadone. The counsel said the doctor would be back in work in two weeks.
Judge McNamara remanded Farrelly on continuing bail to a date at the end of November for a further probation report.
