PSNI Road Policing Interceptors using unmarked cars brought the silver Land Rover Discovery to a stop after a short pursuit in Kilrea.

A male has been reported for multiple offences after being apprehended by PSNI Road Policing Interceptors on Sunday evening, 21st April.


The specially trained policing team is made up of advanced driver officers drawn from the Road Policing Unit who have undergone the latest specialist tactical pursuit and containment (TPAC) tactical training.



The Interceptor team utilises vehicles equipped with sophisticated digital technology, to automatically detect the vehicle registrations of those committing or suspected of committing crime as they move around the Northern Ireland road network.

A spokesperson for the Police Service of Northern Ireland said:


“The vehicle was being driven by an unlicensed, uninsured male who had taken the vehicle onto the public highway without permission from the owner.


“The male has been reported for the offences of No Driving Licence, No Insurance, failing to stop for Police, Taking and driving away (TADA), No VEL (tax) and No Vehicle test certificate (MOT).”
