He­li­copter mon­i­tors car chase

Wicklow People - - NEWS -

A GARDA he­li­copter was de­ployed last week to try and keep track of a car that gar­daí say was driv­ing dan­ger­ously be­tween Ark­low and Brit­tas Bay.

The dra­matic scenes be­gan just af­ter 3 p.m. on Tues­day, April 3. Garda re­ceived a re­port of a car crash in Ark­low and made their way to the scene but the ve­hi­cle ap­peared to drive off.

Gar­daí tried to stop the ve­hi­cle with­out suc­cess.

Ac­cord­ing to gar­daí, a high­speed chase en­sued and con­tin­ued for a con­sid­er­able time, end­ing at a farm­yard in Brit­tas Bay.

A male sus­pect was ar­rested by gar­daí a short time later and brought to Wick­low Garda Sta­tion for ques­tion­ing.

A fe­male pas­sen­ger, a ju­ve­nile, wasn’t ar­rested and was re­turned to her fam­ily.
