Belfast man charged over armed raid
A Belfast man was remanded in custody yesterday accused of weapons offences and a £1,500 off-licence robbery.
Liam Mulhern is charged in connection with an alleged raid on premises on Blacks Road in the city on August 25.
The 26-year-old from Priory Park in the city is facing two counts each of carrying a firearm with criminal intent and possessing a handgun without a certificate.
Mulhern is also charged with robbing the off-licence of £1,552 and a mobile phone.
Mulhern is separately accused of possessing counterfeit currency and driving without a licence or insurance on September 5.
A police constable told Belfast Magistrates Court he could connect the suspect with all of the charges.
Mulhern did not seek bail, but was taken down to the cells during the hearing after shouting abuse from the dock.
He was remanded in custody until next week, when an application to be released is due to be heard.
