Car chase Four teens in stolen car arrested after dangerous high speed pursuit
Gardaí have arrested four teenagers who allegedly led them on a dangerous car chase in a stolen vehicle.
The boys were apprehended at around 2:40am on Wednesday morning when the gardai responded to reports of a stolen car in the Celbridge area of Co Kildare.
Officers have confirmed that they answered the call after the car was spotted "driving erratically".
A patrol car intercepted the vehicle which failed to stop when confronted by Gardaí.
The teens then sped off in the direction of Dublin City centre and a brief chase ensued.
The contained pursuit involved Garda Units from Meath and Dublin and included the Regional Support Unit and the Air Support Unit.
The operation came to a conclusion when the vehicle left the M3 motorway near Batterstown R154 where a vehicle-stopping device "stinger” was utilised.
The four male teens were arrested and taken to Naas Garda Station and detained under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act 1984.
Two of the boys are due to appear before the Children’s Court and two are due to appear before Blanchardstown District Court this morning.
