Two people have appeared in court following a spate of offending which included the burglary of an elderly woman in Enniskillen who woke in the early hours to find a male shining a torch into her face.

Sasha Harkin (20) of Castletown Square, Fintona and Daniel Rodgers (18) of Garden Mews, Cookstown are jointly charged with entering the victim’s property on June 7 as trespassers while armed with a knife with intent to inflict grievous bodily harm.
They are further accused of stealing £66.42 worth of alcohol from an Enniskillen supermarket the previous day and interfering with a motor vehicle. Harkin faces two additional allegations of possessing cannabis and the prescription only-drug Xanax.
The pair appeared at Omagh Magistrates Court by video-link from police custody where a detective constable said all charges could be connected.
She explained shortly before 10pm on June 6, police were alerted to a theft of alcohol from the supermarket. The couple entered the premises together after which Harkin is alleged to have put bottles of alcohol in her bag. Rogers also took a quantity of alcohol. Staff recognised him as he is banned from the store following a previous alleged theft which is currently going through the court system.
The next day police were alerted to a report of a male and female trying to open doors of vehicles parked at Derrin Road, Enniskillen.
The female was heard shouting: “Which car do you want?”
Police spoke to the pair and provided a warning before telling them to move on.
In the early hours of the following day, an elderly woman reported a burglary of her home.
The terrified 83-year-old had woken to find a male standing over her and shining a torch into her face. She shouted at him to get out and while he moved away, she heard him and a female outside the property, calling back and forth to each other. It emerged the male was armed with a knife which he left behind when leaving.
Several items were stolen including a money box, an engagement ring, a tin containing jewellery, two knives and a large amount of £2 coins. When police attended, voices were heard from a nearby property and Rogers and Harkin were discovered with all the stolen items.
There was no application for bail in respect of Rodgers however lawyers for Harkin urged District Judge Mark McGarrity to release her on strict terms.
While acknowledging she has no previous record, the detective objected to her release due to fear of reoffending as: “It appears her anti-social behaviour is escalating. Police have been called to her address five times this year after concerns by members of the public. She has received four Covid penalty notices and all involved alcohol and drugs misuse. When arrested she was found in possession of drugs.”
A defence solicitor said Harkin provided a detailed statement to police around her actions and answered all questions put to her.
She accepted stealing alcohol and having the drugs.
Judge McGarrity said bail could be managed which he set at £500 along with conditions including a ban on entering Enniskillen, a curfew, electronic tagging, and no contact with the co-accused or any witnesses. The case will be mentioned later this month at Enniskillen Magistrates Court.
