A MAN was arrested over suspected drug offences after a dramatic police chase.

PCSOs Ali Blood and Maddie Highmoor were on foot patrol on Thursday evening when they stopped two men on Radley Road in Abingdon on suspicion of drug offences.

But one of them decided to try his luck on foot and ran off.

The fleet-footed officers, who were assisted by a member of the public, collared the suspect.

He was arrested and was being interviewed yesterday morning.

In a post on Facebook, the force commented on the incident: "Fantastic response from ICR Team One and one of our dog handlers who came out to support us, along with the member of public who assisted in the foot pursuit.

"I think we need to work on our Hot Fuzz running technique."
