Police in King’s Lynn made a number of arrests over the weekend in relation to several motoring offences.
In the early hours of this morning (Sunday, December 31) at around 2.27am, police arrested a male driver in North Lynn for failing to stop after a short pursuit.
They later found the man had been driving whilst disqualified, had no insurance and took the vehicle without consent.
A police spokesman said: “He had taken his mother’s car without her permission.
“When we attempted to stop him he reversed at speed and tried to turn the car around and escape, fortunately we safely blocked his car and quickly arrested him.”
The passenger of the car was also arrested for possession of cannabis and on suspicion of taking the car without consent. Both were taken to the town’s police investigation centre.
Yesterday, on Saturday, December 30, King’s Lynn police stopped a car with tyres not fit for use on the road in Southbeach Road in Hunstanton.
On their twitter account, Lynn police said the driver also had no insurance and no driving licence. An officer tweeted saying the driver faced 12 points, a possible disqualification and fine.
King’s Lynn police are also trying to trace the owner of a stolen Boardman bike recovered during a recent police raid. Contact the Neighbourhood Policing Team on 101.
