Man accused over security firm raids

A Belfast man has been returned for trial charged with seizing more than £50,000 during a series of cash-in-transit robberies in the city.

Patrick Shannon (37) is accused of four separate raids on security firms over an 18-month period.

Shannon, of no fixed address, also faces two counts of possessing a handgun with intent.

He is also charged with dishonestly receiving a stolen Vauxhall Vectra and destroying it by arson. Shannon was remanded in custody until his trial starts.
