Two men have appeared in court charged with burglary and theft from a museum in Enniskillen.

James Carlin, 32, from John St, Belfast, and Carlo Holmes, 56, from Clonard Court, Belfast, appeared before Omagh Magistrates Court on Thursday.

They are accused of stealing six helmet badges from the Inniskillings Regimental Museum at Enniskillen Castle on Tuesday afternoon.

Mr Holmes was also charged with assaulting a police officer.

A detective told the court that police found medals and a hammer being carried by Mr Holmes who had tried to disguise his appearance wearing a trench coat, scarf and tweed hat.

A third person arrested in a taxi some distance from the museum has been released on police bail.

The magistrate remanded both men in custody until 26 March.
