Police arrest suspected organised crime gang member on M1

Police operating on the M1 have arrested a man on suspicion of ‘large scale’ thefts from retail businesses across Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

Officers from the PSNI Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) interceptor team stopped a vehicle on the motorway on Friday (April 15) using what they say were ‘pre-emptive’ tactics to prevent the likelihood of a pursuit.

A police spokesperson said: “The vehicle and occupant were suspected of being involved in large scale thefts from retail premises around Great Britain and Northern Ireland and also belonging to the same organised crime gang of which three persons were arrested by the team on Wednesday.
