Original release: 

Six people were arrested in Market Deeping, yesterday (18th November) on suspected driving and harecoursing offences.

Several reports of harecoursing incidents were reported to us on Wednesday morning, largely in the east of the county.

Officers later identified two vehicles containing people suspected to be involved in the offences, in Baston. Our officers then pursued these vehicles.

The pursuit ended just after noon in Northfields Road, Market Deeping, when one of the vehicles collided with another car. No police vehicle was involved in the collision.

Five of the six occupants of the vehicle were detained at the scene. One other person left the scene but was detained by officers shortly afterwards.

All six people – five males aged 14, 27, 32, 38 and 40 and a woman aged 36 – were arrested on suspicion of harecoursing offences, failure to stop, and dangerous driving.

Anyone with information, or who saw a Mercedes ML500 in the area, should get in touch in one of the following ways:

  • Call 101, quoting Incident 150 of 18th November;
  • Email force.control@lincs.pnn.police.uk putting “Incident 150 of 18th November” in the Subject line;
