‘Messing’ with stolen wheelchair

A man who was caught “messing” with a stolen wheelchair was last week given the benefit of the probation act.

Darren Coss, Ballymartin Cross, Borris, Carlow, was charged with handling stolen property at Clonrooske View, Portlaoise, on February 16.

Garda evidence outlined that the wheelchair had been stolen from St Fintan’s Hospital and Coss claimed he had found it in a derelict house. The garda said he was “messing with it”, pushing another male up and down.
