Man arrested for Dangerous Driving & Tobacco-related offences

A 33 year old local man has been arrested on suspicion of Dangerous Driving, Possession & Unlawful Transportation of a Commercial Quantity of Cigarettes and Possession of Radio Transceiver without a licence.

The incident occurred in the early hours of Saturday morning, when uniformed Response Team officers conducting a routine patrol in the area of Cemetery Road challenged a locally registered vehicle, resulting in the driver failing to comply with directions to stop and a vehicle pursuit through Devil’s Tower Road and Laguna Estate, where the vehicle was finally intercepted and the driver arrested.

A total of 15 boxes of cigarettes (150,000) of various brands, a radio transceiver and a motor vehicle have been seized.

The man is currently on Police bail pending further enquiries.
