A 17-year-old boy accused of a three-day crime spree across five counties has been ordered to stay away from financial institutions and must not keep them under observation.

The youth, who cannot be named because he is a minor, faced 13 charges for offences in Dublin, Louth, Kildare, Wicklow and Wexford last week.

He appeared at the Dublin Children’s Court on Monday when he was granted bail with strict conditions.

He is charged with robbery of a woman of €4,000 at Main St, Wicklow Town, on November 18 and handling the stolen money on the same date. It is alleged he also had double-backed tape for use in theft or burglary in Dublin.

The teenager is accused of thefts from vehicles in Enniscorthy and Gorey in Co. Wexford and also having a car with false registration plates on the same date.

He has a charge for possessing a car with fake plates on November 17, and he allegedly tried to steal from two vehicles in Naas, Co. Kildare.

He is accused of stealing €89 of car fuel from a service station on the M1 motorway on November 15. In addition, he is charged with stealing a handbag containing €400 at a car park in Dundalk, Co. Louth and again having a vehicle with false registration plates

The boy, accompanied to court by his mother, has not yet pleaded.

Judge Brendan Toale set bail with strict terms.

He ordered the boy to "stay away from all credit unions, banks and financial institutions" and not "observe or monitor them".

He has to reside at his home address in Dublin, sign on twice a week at his local Garda station and have no contact with another named person in public.

The teen will appear again in January for directions from the Director of Public Prosecutions to be obtained.
