A car belonging to a mystery man called Tom Green has been forfeited to the State, Letterkenny District Court has ruled.
The car, which came into the possession of the Gardai, was mentioned in court.
Garda Sgt Jim Collins said they had been searching for the owner of the car which had been in the name of a Tom Green.
The car had been found outside the home of a burglary suspect following a break-in to Stranorlar Fire Station in April, 2017.
Despite an extensive search, Gardai could not find the registered owner named as Tom Green and he now believed the person does not exist.
“All our enquiries have led us to believe that Tom Green does not exist,” Sgt Collins told the court.
Judge Paul Kelly forfeited the car to the State.
