  2. Well done ๐Ÿ‘ to the police ๐Ÿ‘ฎโ€โ™€๏ธ yet again another fool off the road itโ€™s happening all to often . Thank you to the force

  3. The police did nothing but show up at the scene after! could understand the praise if they had pulled him before he had a chance to hurt anyone else. The big question here is the cocaine and why it is so prevalent in the Catterick / Richmond area, back to you NYPC.
