A man is to appear before a sitting of Carrick-on-Shannon District Court today charged in connection with a series of road traffic offences which occurred in Donegal yesterday morning.
Gardaí arrested four individuals in connection with a burglary, which occurred at a filling station in Tullygay, New Mills, Letterkenny shortly after 3am yesterday.
Gardaí were alerted to a car in the Churchill area of the Milford District. This car was subsequently located abandoned in Glenties, West Donegal.
Arising from this matter a co-ordinated checkpoint operation was put in place involving Gardaí from Ballyshannon, Milford and Letterkenny Districts.
During this operation a car drove through a checkpoint at Kilraine, Glenties, at approximately 11am.
A managed containment operation ensued and the car was apprehended by Gardaí in Donegal town. Four people were arrested in connection with this matter, two men (50s & 40s) and two women (30s & 20s).
The four were detained at Ballyshannon, Letterkenny and Milford Garda Stations under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act 1984.
One man in his mid 40s has now been charged in connection with a number of road traffic offences and will appear before Carrick-on-Shannon District Court at 6pm this evening.
The other man and two women have since been released without charge.
Investigations are ongoing in relation to the burglary matter and a file will be submitted to the Director of Public Prosecutions.
