Truck driver hijacked in Co Meath

Gardaí in Navan are investigating a theft of a truck that occurred in Slane, County Meath last Tuesday, 25th April.

At approximately 11pm, an articulated truck with a male driver onboard was parked in a layby on the N2 Dublin Road in Fennor, Slane, when a number of persons restrained him and took control of his vehicle.

The male driver was threatened and driven from the location but later released with no injuries. He subsequently reported the matter to Gardaí who commenced an investigation.

The truck was recovered Wednesday afternoon, 26th April by Gardaí although the contents of the trailer (a delivery of Covid-19 test kits) were not present.
