Craigavon Courthouse

A 39-year-old man was extradited from France to Northern Ireland today (Wednesday) in relation to keyless car thefts in Co Armagh.

The Police Service of Northern Ireland’s Extradition Department worked in conjunction with the National Crime Agency to bring him back to face the charges.

The man was arrested in France by virtue of a European Arrest Warrant issued in relation to a number of offences relating to keyless car thefts in the area.

The man was charged in May 2020 in respect of a number of offences including conspiracy to steal, going equipped to steal and handling stolen goods in the Armagh, Banbridge and Craigavon area.

He breached Crown Court bail and was apprehended in France.

Chief Inspector Fox said: “This arrest shows our determination and commitment to work with international law enforcement partners to ensure wanted fugitives are tracked down, apprehended and brought to justice.”
