By Staff Reporter

Four teenagers have been arrested after three police cars were rammed in the aftermath of a creeper burglary.

Six PSNI officers were injured and three police vehicles damaged as a result of the collisions with the stolen car.

Police had received a report of people acting suspiciously in Lynda Meadows, Newtownabbey, shortly before 11.45pm on Tuesday.

Officers responded and spotted two males who fled the scene.

The males, aged 17 and 19, were arrested on suspicion of attempted burglary.

Shortly before 1.45am, while officers were conducting follow-up enquiries in Lynda Meadows, a suspected stolen car rammed two police vehicles and sped off. The car was followed to Belfast by officers on the ground and a PSNI helicopter.

The car rammed another police vehicle on Cullingtree Walk in the Divis area of west Belfast.

With assistance from the helicopter, officers arrested two boys, aged 15 and 16, a short time later on suspicion of burglary and offences. All four suspects were in custody yesterday.
