Three men have been charged in connection with a series of alleged burglaries in North Wales.

The suspects dodged a police stinger trap in Deeside during a 60-mile chase across North Wales and Cheshire.

Deeside.com understands the A494 was closed to traffic in Queensferry while an attempt to stop the suspects took place.

According to the North Wales Police, officers were alerted to the presence of the vehicle after witnesses reported seeing it in the area of the burglaries.

In a statement, a Roads Policing Unit spokesperson said: “An authorised pursuit ensued, however, before avoiding a pre-emptive stinger placed in Deeside, the vehicle made its way towards Cheshire where it was seen to drive on the wrong side of the carriageway on the A56, the M6 and onto the A556.”

“Officers from North Wales Police and Cheshire Police, with assistance from the National Police Air Service (NPAS), eventually brought the vehicle to a stop on the M6 in Knutsford, where three occupants inside the vehicle made off.”

“They were quickly detained and in total, three men were arrested on suspicion of burglary and driving offences.”

“Numerous items reported stolen from burglaries reported in the central force area were recovered.”

The three men were later charged with various offences and remanded in custody whilst the investigation continues.

This incident highlights the close collaboration between police forces in North Wales and Cheshire, and the use of technology and resources, such as the National Police Air Service, in bringing suspects to justice.
