An arrest has been made by gardaí investigating the theft of a vehicle in the Balbriggan area, in the early hours of yesterday morning.

The car failed to stop for local gardaí and the Garda Air Support Unit was involved in monitoring its movements as it crossed into the Meath Division.

The suspect – who is in his late teens, was detained in Dunboyne around 4.45am, after the car collided with a ditch and overturned.

He has since been charged and is due to appear before Trim District Court on the 7th April.
