A DRUNKEN intruder was found trespassing in a garda station in an incident that a pregnant officer on duty found “extremely frightening”.

Dailis Kamolis (54), a haulier, had intended no malice or anything sinister, but had been arrested earlier and got lost on his way out, a court heard.

Judge Gerard Jones struck the case out, leaving the accused without a criminal record, after he made a €300 charity donation at Blanchardstown District Court.

Kamolis, from Castleview Heights, Swords, pleaded guilty to trespassing in a manner likely to cause fear.

Garda Claire Higgins said she arrested the accused after he was found in a private area at Ronanstown garda station on April 18 this year.

He had come back in through a private gate and into the station, she said.

Judge Jones asked what the accused’s motive was.

His solicitor Kelly Breen told the court Kamolis had been arrested earlier and was released while he was still under the influence of an intoxicant.

He did not leave the area but came back in through a private area, she said.

The court heard one of the gardaí on duty in the station was expecting and found the whole incident “extremely frightening”.

After some discussion and ushering, Kamolis did eventually leave and found his way out of the complex.

There was nothing sinister in what he had done and he “just couldn’t get home”, Ms Breen told the court.

The garda agreed this was the case.

Kamolis was extremely intoxicated on the day, but had not been drinking alcohol since. He had no previous convictions.

“There was no malice intended,” Ms Breen said.

The accused was from Latvia and had been living and working in Ireland for five years.

The judge told the accused he could thank the prosecuting garda for her "very fair" evidence.
