SCRAMBLERS AND CAR SEIZED IN POLICE CRACKDOWN ON ANTI-SOCIAL BEHAVIOUR IN DERRY
THE PSNI in Derry say they are determined to crack down on those involved in anti-social behaviour.
It follows the seizure by police on Friday night of a stolen scramble bike with three males on board.
Another bike and a car were also seized following reports to police from local residents of them being driven at speed and dangerously.
PSNI Foyle say: “Ballyarnet Neighbourhood Policing Team is aware of the ongoing issue of motorbikes, cars and scramblers being driven in a dangerous and anti-social manner in the Northern Estates.
“On Friday, as a result of calls being rung in, we were able to intercept a scrambler with three males on board, arrest the suspected driver and seize the bike.
“We also intercepted and seized a car being driven dangerously in the Galliagh and Carnhill area and the night before we seized a scrambler from Knockalla Park.
“The reckless behaviour of this small minority puts not only themselves but local residents at risk as well as causing annoyance to the community.
“Police understand the frustration of local residents but would encourage everyone to keep reporting such incidents as we continue to try to tackle this issue.”
Anyone with information about anti-social behaviour in Derry should ring police on the 101 non-emergency number.
