Inspector Kelly Gibson said, “A report was received that two men had entered a house in the Tullyah Road area of Belleeks.



“The men were disturbed by the occupant of the house and they left empty-handed, leaving the area in a black coloured car with southern registration plates.

“A description of the car was circulated to patrolling officers who picked up a vehicle matching this description on the Carnagat Road, Newry.

“The black Audi car failed to stop for police when signalled to and rammed a police vehicle at the junction of Hospital Road before making its way into Derrybeg where it impacted with a residential property.

“We have been dealing with an increase in the number of burglaries across Co Down and Armagh recently and have increased police resources in our attempts to address the problem.



“This was great work by officers on the ground and I am glad to report that no officers were seriously injured as a result of the collision.

“We will be liaising with our colleagues in An Garda Siochana in relation to recent burglaries carried out across the border and also working to establish any links with other incidents we are investigating.

“Our efforts to combat domestic burglaries are continuing and I would ask householders to remain vigilant, lock doors and windows and report any suspicious activity to police.



He added, “If you have any information which could assist us please call on 101 or alternatively speak to the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”

He has since been charged with driving-related offences including dangerous driving.



He was also charged with driving while disqualified and using a motor vehicle without insurance.

The man has appeared before Newry Magistrates’ Court.



As is normal procedure the charges will be reviewed by the Public Prosecution Service.
