A STOLEN car and a knife have been recovered following a police chase through the borough which saw two men arrested on suspicion of burglary.

Officers from Brierley Hill gave chase after responding to a call about a burglary in progress in Cradley Heath this morning (July 8).

Two vehicles reportedly made off from the scene with police in pursuit of one of them, a red Skoda, to Netherton.

Officers then gave chase on foot, after the vehicle was abandoned, with a police dog drafted in.

A large Rambo style knife was recovered during the drama and both occupants, aged 21 and 23, were arrested on suspicion of burglary, possession of an offensive weapon and taking a vehicle without consent.

Dudley PC Jamie Follows said the car which was recovered had been stolen during a burglary in May and that both men were this morning in custody as the police investigation continued.
