Two early morning joggers were charged by police with breach of the shelter in place rules on Thursday.

A spokesman said they were spotted by officers on patrol on Harrington Sound Road in Smith’s, near Knapton Hill around 2:20am.

There were warned by officers they would be summonsed to appear in Magistrates’ Court.

A driver was arrested and charged with the same offence a few hours earlier after he led police on a chase through two parishes.

Police saw a black car on Warwick’s Spice Hill Road about 11.10pm on Wednesday and followed it.

“The driver accelerated, turned on to Camp Road, refused to stop and went on to the Railway Trail off Scenic Heights.

“Officers were subsequently able to stop the vehicle and the driver was arrested and charged for breach of curfew.”

And a motorcyclist who was spotted riding without a helmet on Spice Hill Road about 40 minutes earlier, failed to stop for police and escaped after a chase.

Officers found the motorcycle which is registered to an address in Sandys, abandoned at the bottom of Wellman Lane in Warwick.
