THREE people were arrested in Hagley on October 16 after a vehicle which failed stop for police was brought to a safe standstill with a stinger.

Officers received the first call at 11.05pm when the Vauxhall Astra was on the A456 Kidderminster Road.

A ten-minute pursuit ensued and the car was also tracked by the force helicopter.

When it reached Hall Lane specially trained officers used a stinger to stop the car and four men got out of the vehicle and fled.

Three of them were caught, arrested and taken into custody and a number of tools found in the vehicle which would usually be used to break into properties or cars were seized by officers.

Witnesses or anyone with any information should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
