Night-time raid at a Belfast hospital31st January 2013
Belfast's High Court has been informed about a night raid in which intruders targeted vulnerable patients, including a double amputee and a man under sedation.
Two men went into the Royal Victoria Hospital in October 2012 and stole items including a watch, mobile phone and a handbag. One of two men, Gerald Madden, applied for bail but it was refused by the judge. CCTV footage forms part of the evidence against the accused and the court heard that several patients had woken to find the thieves by their beds. A prosecuting barrister said: "One was sedated, one was in their early seventies, and one was a double amputee."
