Police have today (Friday) issued an appeal for members of the public to be on the lookout for possible illegal taxis in the Keady area.
Police have been made aware that vehicles, purporting to be bona fide taxi companies, may be working in the area.
They are warning the public to remain vigilant and report any suspicious vehicles to local police immediately on 0845 600 8000.
Constable Glasgow, Keady Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “Do not get into any vehicle if you have any doubt as to whether it’s a genuine taxi cab.
“We have a busy taxi sector where people work long and unsociable hours to provide a high quality service. Illegal taxi activity holds back the taxi industry and damages its image.
“We will continue to work with our partner agencies to apply tough enforcement and other measures to make sure that every taxi on our roads is safe, driven by an insured, licensed driver and operated through a reputable taxi business.”
