Mar 13 - RGP Patrol Van Damaged During Pursuit

An RGP patrol van was extensively damaged last night in a collision at Town Range.

The patrol van was involved in a pursuit of a motorcyclist riding in a dangerous manner, at speed and against the flow of traffic.

The rider, a 49-year-old local man, tested positive to a roadside drugs test and has been arrested for various traffic offences and a Warrant of Arrest issued by the Magistrates’ Court. He has since been granted police bail.

All the circumstances surrounding the pursuit and subsequent collision are subject to further investigation.
