Original release - Thursday 20 July
Just before 00.10 am, on Thursday 20 July, our ARV officers spotted a grey BMW X3 on the A17 at Sutton Bridge. The driver failed to stop for police and a pursuit was authorised. The fleeing BMW was stopped in it’s tracks when it passed over a stinger device, near Long Sutton, and three of the vehicles’ tyres were deflated. Investigations have revealed the car was on cloned plates.
The three occupants, two men, aged 30 and 21 and a woman, aged 26, all from the local area have been arrested on suspicion of going equipped and the driver additionally arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving, fail to stop, and warrant offences.
These arrests come as we launch our road safety summer campaign which targets aggressive drivers, speeding, dangerous driving and overtaking and failing to look properly at junctions. This time of year we see the highest number of casualties on our roads and along with the Lincolnshire Road Safety Partnership, we’re urging drivers to “have a little patience” You can read more about the campaign here Drivers: Just have a little patience | Lincolnshire Police (lincs.police.uk)
