A PORTARLINGTON man who stole a packet of pork chops was last week put on probation.
Derek Ryan, 426 Kilnacourt Woods, Port, was convicted of theft from Aldi, Port, on April 3. Defence, Mr Philip Meagher said his client was extremely remorseful and the goods were fit for sale when recovered.
“He has a long standing difficulty and may not have been himself on the day,” Mr Meagher said.
The matter was put back to July 5 for a probation report.
