Officers from West Surrey response are appealing to members of the public who witnessed a vehicle driving dangerously through Ash and Mychett to contact them with information.
At around 10.30am this morning (Sunday, 28 February) a car was seen being driven in suspicious circumstances on Vale Road in Ash. The car was then seen travelling along Mychett Road in a manner which officers deem was unacceptable. The vehicle was found on Loman Road, Mychett near the children’s playing area.
The driver, and sole occupant of the vehicle, a white Volkswagen Golf, left the car and a search was carried out in the local area. This included the area, including woodland, surrounding Basingstoke Canal Centre. Officers on the ground were assisted in the search by NPAS, Surrey and Sussex Dog Unit and Surrey Search and Rescue who were already in the area on a training exercise.
Sergeant Brian Prodger, said: “We know that several drivers had to dangerously manoeuvre their vehicles around this car and I would strongly urge those people to get in touch with police.
“If you believe you are one of the witnesses we need to speak with, please contact Surrey Police as a matter of urgency. This can be done by calling 101 or using the reporting online tool on our website.”
*A man in his late teens has been arrested on suspicion of several motoring offences and remains in police custody at this time.
Anyone who can assist police with their investigation is urged to make contact as soon as possible quoting reference P16045591. Information can be passed anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
