A vehicle stolen from Princes Town on October 30 was recovered early Tuesday morning by officers of the San Fernando Criminal Investigations Department (CID) along Cypress Ridge, Union Hall.

At around 12.30 am officers on patrol spotted a silver Nissan B14 without headlights heading towards the intersection. The driver accelerated when he saw the officers. The officers gave chase and the vehicle ran off the roadway, crashed into a lamppost, and the driver escaped into Cypress Ridge. The officers pursued him and a 20-year-old unemployed man was arrested.

It was later determined that the vehicle had false number plates. Additional investigations revealed that it had been stolen.
