A Romanian National who travelled across Ireland targetting vulnerable people at ATMs has been dubbed the "Beast of the East" by a judge.

Judge Patrick Durcan, sitting in Ennis District Court, said Auriel Dinca (42) and his pregnant partner Adriana Neagoe (26) had flown from Romania to Ireland "seeking out vulnerable people with bank accounts and essentially cleared out the bank accounts".
Judge Durcan said €2,100 was stolen from Monica Donovan in Gort, Co Galway, in April; €2,571 from Ann O'Flaherty in Galway city last November; €2,400 from Kathleen Fitzgerald in February in Cork; and €3,080 from Tess Frost in Shannon, also in February.
Despite both pleadings guilty to the thefts, only Dinca was jailed receiving 15 months, Neagoe was given a five-month suspended sentence on condition that she leave Ireland within 14 days.
