Three teenage burglary suspects have been detained after a police pursuit in Maidstone in the early hours of Friday, May 11.

An 18-year-old from Gravesend, a 19-year-old from Orpington and a 17-year-old from Strood were arrested.

At around 12.30am police officers on patrol became suspicious of a vehicle that was being driven in Wat Tyler Way, Maidstone.

Following inquiries, they discovered the vehicle, a Vauxhall Vectra, had been reported stolen in a burglary in Kimberley Road, Gillingham.

Police say it failed to stop when requested to do so and a pursuit was authorised.

The pursuit came to an end in Royal Engineers Way following the successful and safe use of a stinger, which deflated the suspect vehicle’s tyres and brought the car to a stop.

All three teenagers remain in custody.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
