Tipperary Carjacking Ends In Arrest

Gardai have arrested a man aged in his early sixties, following the stealing of a car which contained a four month old baby boy on the rear seat.

The car was stolen in Newport Village, Co. Tipperary yesterday afternoon and the carjacker was pursued for over 50 kilometres by police.

Gardai immediately put an alert operation in place  which resulted in the safe recovery of the baby and the car, in the area of Birdhill Nenagh.  The baby was uninjured and was reunited by police with his distraught parents a short time later.

A male was arrested on the outskirts of Limerick at approximately 4.00pm and detained at Nenagh Garda Station under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act 1984.

He was charged yesterday evening and is due to appear at Nenagh District Court today.
