Two men due in court charged with impersonating a Garda in Athlone

Two Athlone men are due to appear in court later this month charged with impersonating a Garda.

On Tuesday night, it’s alleged they were pretending to be plain-clothes officers and were stopping cars in Garrycastle, Athlone.

One of the drivers who was allegedly halted by them contacted the gardaí, who it’s claimed arrived when another vehicle was being impeded.


Two local 18-year-olds have been charged to appear in Athlone District Court on January 24.
