Five men arrested after police chase burglars from Great Yarmouth to Bury St Edmunds
Five men tried to escape police after a burglary by driving nearly 50 miles across the Norfolk border.
Norfolk Police worked with Bury St Edmunds Police to track two vehicles after a suspected burglary in Great Yarmouth on Wednesday, October 10 at around midnight.
Officers gave commentary on the location of the vehicles, which meant colleagues further ahead were able to form a plan and stop them.
Police were able to recover property believed to have been stolen, seize the two vehicles and arrest the five men on the A14 in Suffolk.
On Twitter, Bury St Edmunds Police thanked all the teams involved.
