A 17-year-old Dublin girl has pleaded guilty to carrying out an armed raid at a service station, while brandishing an imitation gun made from duct tape.
The girl, who can't be named because she's a minor, appeared at Dublin Children’s Court today.
She was charged with the theft of 179 euro in cash as well as 73 euro worth of cigarette papers from the Applegreen service station on Parnell Road in Dublin 12 on a date in January last year.
She faces an additional charge for producing an implement covered in black duct tape, shaped to look like a firearm, during the raid.
The court heard she was 16 at the time, and acted as an accomplice to a man who was also armed.
The judge adjourned sentencing to allow gardai to get victim impact statements from two shop workers.
