A MAN asked gardaí: “Are you here for me boys?” when they saw him attempt to throw an object over the wall of a Dublin prison.
The former Joseph Curran (22) ran away from the officers and jumped into the gardens of the people to escape.
He was jailed for three months when he appeared in Blanchardsttown District Court.
Curran, of Cashel Avenue, Crumlin, admitted trying to get an article into Wheatfield Prison in the August 5 incident.
He also pleaded guilty to obstructing a drug search and committing trespassing in the same incident.
Gardaí Sergeant Maria Callaghan told Judge David McHugh the accused was seen by Gardaí at the back of the prison throwing an object over a wall.
The court heard him say: “Are you here for me boys?” as the Gardaí approached him.
Curran then “run” and jumped into several gardens as he tried to escape gardaí before he gets caught.
Curran had a criminal record and was in custody when he appeared in court.
Defense attorney Ciaran MacLoughlin said it was recognized that the defendant did not have a very good record but was doing well in custody, attended school there and kept his head down.
But the verdict was on one of the trespassing charges the judge considered the others.
