- 14 Oct 2015
Ivo Rutkovskis (29) of Homeless Aid in Drogheda pleaded guilty at Drogheda District Court to being in possession of the knife on April 4th at Magdalene Street.
Inspector Brendan Caddan said Rutkovskis had no reason for carrying the knife.
He said the 29-year-old has 16 previous convictions including one for being in unlawful possession of drugs, a theft conviction and 14 road traffic convictions.
Defence solicitor Paul Moore said the reason the defendant was stopped by gardai was because of his previous Section 3 unlawful possession of drugs offence.
‘He had no drugs on him but he had the knife,’ said Mr Moore.
‘It was the company he was keeping for a period of time before this that led him into bad things,’ explained Mr Moore, adding that Rutkovskis has a young daughter.
Judge Flann Brennan said he will request a Probation Report but warned the defendant he must not carry a weapon.
‘ This is quite simply against the law and it is inviting trouble apart from anything else,’ said Judge Brennan and adjourned the case until January 22nd next year.

GARDAI found bags of heroin and cannabis when they searched a 26-year-old man after they became suspicious when they had seen him entering a transaction with another man, Drogheda District Court heard last Friday.
Ivo Rutkovskis, with an address at Knockbrack Downs, Matthews Lane, Drogheda, was remanded in custody for two weeks for the preparation of Probation and medical reports.
Sgt. Donal McGivern gave evidence of observing the defendant entering into a transaction with another male at 1.45 a.m. on December 9 last. He became suspicious and as he approached Rutkovskis he dropped a clear bag containing three wrapped amounts of a brown substance.
The defendant's solicitor said he was originally from Latvia and was living on social welfare as he hadn't worked in two years.
Three closure orders were served on:
- Kebabish Tandoori, 39 Clanbrassil Street Lower, Wood Quay, Dublin 8
- Eurospar, Main Street, Kinnegad, Co. Westmeath
- China City, 17 Temple Street, Sligo
In the case of the Kebabish Tandoori, “fresh rodent droppings were present on the floor” in the washing up and food preparation area.
In the Eurospar, “rodent droppings were visible on the floor in the bakery storage area”, as well as in the bakery kitchen.
In China City, there was evidence of “rodent infestation” where chest freezers and other foodstuffs were storied.
The floor in the kitchen was also described as in “filthy condition”.
One prohibition order was served on:
- Halal Food and Grocery, Unit 6, Trinity Court, Fonthill Road, Dublin 22
Here, minced meat was being incorrectly given up to 26 days shelf-life as a result of re-vacuum packing. This posed a “serious risk to public health,” the FSAI inspector said.
