The footage of the Irish national driving at high speed on Spain’s AP-6 motorway follows similar news reported at the beginning of the month of June when a police car chase took place on the evening of Thursday, June, 2, beginning in Estepona and ending in a town in Mijas, Spain.

A helicopter, with the Cóndor call sign, informed the other units of the route taken by the fleeing vehicle. The police car chase ended in the the town of Calahonda, in Mijas, when the vehicle left the motorway and entered a housing estate in the area.

At that moment, the occupants of the car got out of the car carrying large bags containing cash, estimated at €6,845, thus ending the police pursuit.
