Taxi stolen from Cardigan results in high-speed police chase through Pembrokeshire

In an incident that took place last weekend, a taxi was stolen from its depot in Cardigan town centre resulting in a high-speed police car chase that spanned through Pembrokeshire.

The incident occurred in the early afternoon on Sunday 27 August, when a white Ford taxi was reported stolen from the Home James depot in Cardigan. The taxi operators quickly took to social media to release details of the theft, and this led to numerous reports being made to Dyfed-Powys Police of a car matching its description driving erratically in Pembrokeshire.

Law enforcement agencies swiftly took action in response to the reports and began tracking the stolen vehicle as it made its way through Pembrokeshire, heading towards Haverfordwest. The police pursuit ensued, with officers working to apprehend the suspects.

Reports suggest that the high-speed chase came to an end in Haverfordwest, where the stolen taxi was eventually intercepted by the police, resulting in the arrest of the individuals occupying the vehicle.

Authorities are now urging anyone with pertinent information related to this incident to come forward and contact Dyfed-Powys Police. The police department is actively seeking any details that may help them further investigate this case.

A Home James Taxis spokesperson said via social media: “The car has been found and the thieves have been arrested. Thank you to all of you who took the time to contact the police to report the dangerous driving. Thankfully nobody was hurt!”
