A man accused of possession of stolen clothes failed to appear in court, then travelled to the US despite a warrant being issued for his arrest, gardaí said.

Isac Serdaru (24) was arrested at Dublin Airport when he was deported from the US, having travelled there months after the warrant was issued.

Judge Conal Gibbons granted him conditional bail despite garda objections and adjourned the case at Dublin District Court.

Mr Serdaru is charged with possession of stolen clothing worth €399 at Penney's, Dundrum Town Centre on February 12, 2020.

Garda Leona Stamp said she arrested the accused at the airport on Tuesday.

Of the original charge, she said he had been arrested close to where a theft occurred, he was intercepted trying to flee and had the stolen items on him.

He failed to appear in Dún Laoghaire District Court in February last year, then travelled to the US last April. He was deported this week.

She was unable to confirm he was staying at the Millbrook Avenue, Donaghmede address provided and she believed he was a flight risk.

Applying for bail, defence barrister Garrett Casey said the case would almost certainly stay in the district court.

At the time the warrant was issued, Mr Serdaru had gone to support his grandmother who had a heart attack. The US travel was more than a year later, he said.
