Mayo News reports:

“A District Court judge has questioned the logic of bringing two charges of theft against a Castlebar man after hearing that the total amount of the alleged goods stolen was approximately €3. Michael Maughan of Moneen Campsite, Castlebar, was arrested at McHale Road on April 29 last, for the alleged theft of one can of Red Bull and one bottle of 7up from Cathal Duffy’s on the Ballinrobe Road, Castlebar, on the same date.”

“Judge Devins outlined that Maughan would qualify for legal aid and could take the matter to a higher court, possibly resulting in the State paying up to €10,000 in legal costs.”
