A quantity of suspected class A and B drugs were recovered from the vehicle as was a suspected pepper spray device.

The 22-year-old-man was arrested at the scene on suspicion of failing a drug drive test, dangerous driving,  possession of class A and B drugs, failing to stop for police and possession of a firearm.

He was taken to Bury St Edmunds Police Investigation Centre for questioning and subsequently released under investigation pending further enquiries.
