Two men in their 20s were remanded in custody when the appeared at Derry Magistrates Court charged in connection with the hijacking of a car in the city earlier this week.
Brendan Meenan (22), of Methodist Mission in Crawford Square and Patrick McCallion (23), of the Simon Community Hostel in the Waterside, are jointly charged in connection with the hijacking of a Kia Picanto in the Little Diamond area of the city on Wednesday night last.
Both accused are charged with seizing the car and driving without insurance and without a licence.
McCallion is further charged with failing to provide a breath specimen and dangerous driving.
Meenan is also charged with driving whilst unfit due to drink or drugs, stealing a Visa debit card belonging to the wife of the car driver and dangerous driving.
A PSNI detective told the court both men were arrested close to the Simon Community hostel about an hour after the car was seized.
The detective told the court no weapon or threats were made during the incident.
No bail application was made by McCallion.
However, Resident Magistrate Barney McElholm rejected such an application from Meenan after he heard he had only been released from jail three weeks earlier after serving a sentence for motoring offences.
Both accused were remanded in custody to appear back in court on 1 September next.
