Belfast Winemark robbery accused is remanded
A man was remanded in custody today accused of involvement in an armed robbery on a south Belfast off licence.
Michael Cassidy appeared in court over his alleged role in the cash raid on Winemark on the Ormeau Road last Friay night.
The 22-year-old, of Shaftesbury Avenue in the city, faces charges of robbery, possessing a knife with intent to commit robbery, and making a threat to kill.
He is also accused of stealing an electronic monitoring tag valued at £176 in a separate incident on December 7.
Standing in the dock at Belfast Magistrates' Court, Cassidy spoke only to confirm he understood all of the charges.
A PSNI officer said she could connect him to the alleged offences.
She confirmed to a defence solicitor that CCTV evidence was not available for Cassidy to view during police interviews.
District Judge George Conner was told the accused was not making a bail application at this stage.
Cassidy was remanded in custody to appear again by video-link in four weeks time.
