Arrests over stolen motorbike

Gardai pursued two suspects on foot after intercepting a van which was towing a stolen trailer and motorbike.

In the early hours of Sunday morning Gardai received reports of two males have been spotted acting in a suspicious manner in Roundwood. A short time later they were notified that a shed had been broken into and a motorcycle and trailer stolen.

While making their way to the scene, a Garda patrol car came across a van traveling on the road which was towing a trailer with a motorcycle inside it.

As gardaí attempted to stop the vehicle, two males abandoned the van and attempted to flee on foot through fields.

They were detained a short time later. One of the men had to be hospitalised due to injuries he received, either during the course of the robbery or while attempting to flee from gardaí. The second man was brought to Wicklow Garda Station for questioning. The van was seized by gardaí, who also took possession of the motorcycle and trailer which were later identified by the owner.
