Man who thought neighbour was a heroin dealer bailed after breaking into his house

14 September, 2021 15:14

A man who allegedly broke into his neighbour's house with a gun to look for a suspected heroin dealer is to be released from custody, a judge has ruled.

Peter Brown, 47, is accused of being one of the armed intruders who struggled with a homeowner at a property in Newtownabbey, Co Antrim.

He was granted bail after detectives confirmed there is no paramilitary link to the incident last weekend.

Belfast Magistrates' Court heard two men forced their way into the house at Fernagh Drive on September 11.

A man who lives there was confronted by one of the pair poking the barrel of a handgun through the door in his direction, according to police.

His seven-year-old daughter appeared in the hallway and began to scream.

The alleged victim grabbed at the gun in a bid to disarm the intruder, the court was told, but then spotted an older accomplice on a crutch who he recognised.

Brown, with an address on Fernagh Drive, is accused of being the second man.

The homeowner was said to have fought off both intruders during a struggle where he was struck on the face.

One of the pair fled, while the older man allegedly sat down on a wall an urged the homeowner not to phone police.

He claimed they had been looking for a man said to deal heroin in the area, the court heard.

There is no suggestion that the victim, who has a different name, is involved in any drug activity.

Brown was arrested while wearing camouflage clothes similar to one of the burglars, the detective said.

A manual on a blank-firing pistol and blank rounds were allegedly discovered at his home.

During interviews he denied entering the property or bringing any weapon to the scene.

Brown faces charges of aggravated burglary with intent to inflict grievous bodily harm and possession of a firearm.

District Judge Mark McGarrity freed Brown on bail, however, he was banned from going near the scene of the burglary or having any contact with the victims.
