Stolen trailer recovered following Garda chase in Wexford

Gardai in Co. Wexford have recovered a stolen trailer following a car chase in Co. Wexford last week, An Garda Siochana has confirmed.

Gardai conducting a checkpoint at Shanbogh, New Ross, followed a vehicle which failed to stop at the checkpoint in the early hours of Friday morning, August 31, according to a Garda spokesperson.

Giving chase, Gardai stopped the van which was towing a trailer.

The trailer is believed to have been stolen from Castlebridge earlier. It contained other property including calf feeders, garden sprayers and other garden equipment.

A man in his 20s appeared before Gorey District Court later that day, the spokesperson added.

Land Cruiser recovered in Meath

Meanwhile, a silver Toyota Land Cruiser that was reportedly stolen from a field in Co. Meath last week has been recovered, An Garda Siochana has confirmed.

The vehicle was located in Lismullen, Navan at 7.45pm on Tuesday evening, August 28, a Garda spokesperson said, having been stolen near Garlow Cross the same evening.

The 2007 4X4 – with a Meath registration – was reportedly taken at 3:00pm on Tuesday.

It is believed that the Land Cruiser was stolen as the owner was “harvesting” in the field. Gardai outlined that the vehicle was driven off in the direction of Navan after it was taken from the field.

This was the third such Land Cruiser to be stolen in recent weeks following similar thefts in Cork and Tipperary.
