Gardaí arrested five people in Headford following a managed containment operation on Monday.

The operation began in Headford at approximately 6pm in the evening, when a car failed to stop for Gardaí.

The car travelled at speed from Headford to Tuam and crossed the Mayo border into Kilmaine and then onto Shrule, before returning back to Headford.

The vehicle was stopped at approximately 6.40pm when it reached a dead end. 

All five occupants of the car were arrested and conveyed to Tuam Garda Station.

All five have been released without charge.

A file is being prepared for the DPP in this matter.

Enquiries are ongoing and anyone with information or video footage, including dash cam footage, is asked to make contact with Gardaí in Tuam on (093) 70840.
