Gardaí have arrested a man in relation to the theft of a van in Co. Cork on November 19, 2020.

At around 6am Gardai were made aware that a van had been stolen at Victoria Cross whilst the owner was in a shop. At around 7am Millstreet Gardai saw the van on the N72 and signalled the driver to stop, but he failed to do so.

Gardaí followed the van from a safe distance which eventually stopped at Shinnagh, Rathmore. The driver, a man in his 20s, was arrested and detained at Killarney Garda Station under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act, 1984.

He has since been charged and is due to appear before Listowel District Court today.
