GARDAÍ in Letterkenny seized a car that had just been sold.
The owner of the car had traveled over 25km to collect the car and was on the return journey when stopped by Gardaí.
The driver of the vehicle was suspected of having no driving licence, no insurance, no valid NCT and no tax.
Gardaí say that court proceedings will follow.
A spokesperson said: “Our patrols and checkpoints are ongoing. Never ever take unnecessary risks on the roads.”
