FOUR MALE TEENAGERS were arrested by gardaí in relation to the theft and dangerous driving of a car in Co Kildare in the early hours of yesterday morning.

Gardaí responded to a call after a car was observed being driven erratically in the Celbridge area at around 2.40am yesterday.

This driver failed to stop for gardaí when signalled to do so, and took off in the direction of Dublin.

A contained pursuit operation was undertaken by gardaí from Meath and Dublin and included the Regional Support Unit and the Air Support Unit.

The operation came to a conclusion when the vehicle left the M3 motorway near Batterstown R154 where a vehicle-stopping device or so-called ‘stinger’ was utilised.

The four male teens were arrested and taken to Naas Garda Station and detained under section four of the Criminal Justice Act 1984.
