Alleged south Belfast burglars released on bail

Two alleged burglars appeared in court today accused of raids in south Belfast.

Michael Daniels, 27, and Patrick Daniels, 25, face charges connected to bids to break into properties in the university area in the early hours of Monday.

Houses on Ireton Street, Cromwell Street and Posnett Street were allegedly targeted.

The pair, both of Derryveagh Drive in the city, are each charged with burglary, attempted burglary and going equipped with three screwdrivers for burglary.

Michael Daniels is further accused of two assaults on police.

Police opposed their applications for bail as they appeared together in the dock at Belfast Magistrates' Court.

But District Judge Fiona Bagnall ruled they could both be released from custody to live at an approved address.

They must also abide a night-time curfew as part of a series of conditions.

Both men are expected back in court later this month.
