POLICE in the Derry City and Strabane District seized a car on Monday after it failed to stop for Gardai in Co Donegal.
As a result two women were later issued with fines for breaching the COVID-19 lockdown laws on non-essential travel.
Chief Inspector Jonny Hunter of PSNI Derry City and Strabane said: “Police in Strabane seized a vehicle yesterday afternoon Monday, April 13 which had reportedly failed to stop for An Garda Síochána (AGS) in the Lifford area of Co Donegal.
“AGS colleagues had alerted us at 3:10 pm that a red Audi A4 had made off from their officers and crossed into Strabane.
“We subsequently located the vehicle, abandoned in the Clady village area, at around 4 pm, which we subsequently seized.
“Two females were subsequently issued with two fines for breach of the Health Protection (Coronavirus Restrictions) Regulations NI 2020.”
Chief Inspector Hunter added: “This is a good example of cross border work with our colleagues in An Garda Síochána.”Tags:
