A 24-year-old man who was arrested following a creeper burglary and a two vehicle road traffic collision at the Caw roundabout in Londonderry on February 5, has been returned to prison having had his licence revoked.

A PSNI spokesman said the man has been released on bail pending further inquiries in relation to a number of other offences that he was arrested under suspicion for and “robust investigations into these offences will continue”.

On Friday the PSNI released a statement revealing that a grey Skoda Superb was stolen in a creeper burglary in the Lindenwood Park area in the early hours of February 5.

After the car was spotted by police just before 12.20pm, a police pursuit was in place when the stolen car was involved in a collision with another car.

During the incident two police officers who were on foot were injured in their attempts to get out of the way when the stolen car drove at them and another officer was injured when making the arrest.

None are believed to have received any serious injuries.
