Arrests after stolen car rammed police vehicle in Salisbury

SNIFFER dogs and a helicopter helped track two people after a stolen vehicle rammed a police car near Salisbury.

The incident unfolded at around 8.30pm on Thursday night (January 11) when officers identified a Toyota Prius which had been stolen from London in August.

They tracked the vehicle on the A36 towards Wilton, however it made off after ramming a police vehicle.

The vehicle was then tracked to Adlam Way, where it was found abandoned.

The two suspects from the vehicle were tracked by Police Dog Skye before being located hiding in a garden by the National Police Air Service.

Two men, aged 20 and 19, from Salisbury, were arrested on suspicion of taking a vehicle without consent, failing to stop for police, and dangerous driving.

One of the men was further arrested for drug driving after failing a drugs wipe.

They remained in custody for questioning on Friday.
