It was a busy weekend for the Borough

Information sent on behalf of Surrey Police

It’s been a busy weekend for the borough. 🚓

Very late on Saturday evening (01/08/2020) a 28 year old man, from Sutton, failed to stop for Police and led a number of Officers in a pursuit around the Epsom Downs area. Having used the vehicle he was in to ram a Police vehicle he then drove dangerously around the Downs. He rammed a second Police vehicle before finally coming to a stop. This driver was arrested for a number of offences, including Theft of Motor Vehicle, Dangerous Driving, Failing to Stop and both Drink Driving and Drug Driving. He has been released under investigation whilst a couple of enquiries come back.
On Sunday evening our NPAS (National Police Air Service) colleagues were in the Epsom area assisting with the search of a missing person. Whilst in the air a laser pen was shone into the aircraft a number of times. This caused concern to the pilot and crew and put the entire team at risk. NPAS were able to direct ground units to the area where they suspected the lasers has been shone from. Within minutes a 20 year old man and a 32 year old man, both from Epsom, had been arrested under the Laser Misuse Act 2018 and have been released under investigation to allow further evidence to be collated.
Officers are also working on investigations around Public Order offences that happened in the town, over the weekend. However, we will not be publishing any further details of these, at this time.
