Gardaí have arrested and charged a man in his 20s in relation to the theft and criminal damage of a car that was stolen from a car park in Clonakilty last month.
At approximately 4:30am on February 10, Gardaí received a report of a car that had been stolen in Clonakilty. The car was recovered later that day in the Ballinhassig area.
A significant amount of damage was caused to the inside of the car as an attempt was made to set it on fire.
Following an investigation by Gardaí in Clonakilty, a man in his 20s was arrested yesterday.
He was detained at Bandon Garda Station under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act 1984 and has since been charged to appear before Clonakilty District Court at a later date.
