A PRESTATYN police officer has pleaded not guilty to taking a patrol car without consent, dangerous driving and damaging property.

Kevin Szabo, 40, of Prestatyn, is accused of taking the Vauxhall Astra from Ellesmere Port police station while off-duty on January 29.

It is alleged that he drove the vehicle dangerously along the A55 and A54 to Winsford before crashing it into the gates of Cheshire Constabulary’s headquarters.

He denied all charges during a brief appearance at Chester Crown Court yesterday morning.

A hearing is due to take place on Tuesday, July 29, to decide on a venue for the trial, which has provisionally been set for February 16 next year. Szabo was granted conditional bail.
