A gang tried to put Gardai off their trail by throwing items out of their car during a pursuit in Co Donegal last night.
The suspects failed to stop for Gardai following a checkpoint near Lifford and sped off.
Gardai pursued the car towards St Johnston.
However, in a bid to get away, those in the car threw a number of items out of their car at Gardai.
The suspects were eventually brought to a halt by a stringer and were arrested by Gardai. It emerged that the driver was under the influence of cocaine and had been disqualified from driving.
Nobody was injured during the high-speed pursuit which took place over a number of kilometres.
The Armed Support Unit, the Divisional Drugs Unit, the Road Policing units from Letterkenny and Buncrana and Gardaí from Raphoe, Carrigans and Ballybofey all assisted in the chase.
Those arrested are understood to be from Northern Ireland.
One of the three arrested was released on bail and the other two appeared at a special sitting of a Court today. They have been further remanded in custody.Tags:
