Police have arrested three men on suspicion of possession with intent to supply cannabis following a pursuit in the Dorking area last night (4 February).
Officers noticed a strong smell of cannabis as they passed a vehicle around 7.50pm on the Leatherhead Bypass.
The car, a grey Vauxhall Corsa, made off from police, and a pursuit was authorised.
The pursuit ended in Stane Street after the car sustained damage to a tyre. There were no injuries to any of the officers, members of the public or the suspects during the pursuit.
All three occupants, who were all from Leatherhead, were detained with the vehicle.
Following a search of the car, officers discovered a large quantity of cannabis, as well as cash and scales, and all three were arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply class B drugs.
A 16-year-old boy has been released on police bail and an 18-year-old man has been released under investigation.
A 20-year-old man was also arrested on suspicion of failing to stop for police and dangerous driving. He has been released under investigation.
