Three people have been arrested after a car chase was ended by a stinger.
The men were taken into custody after reportedly trying to flee police in Maidstone.
Officers reported spotting the trio in a suspected stolen car driving through the Coxheath area shortly after midnight on Tuesday.
It failed to stop, triggering a chase but was brought to a stop after a stinger device was placed in Tovil Road.
The three occupants of the vehicle then left the scene on foot but were promptly arrested.
Two men aged 20 and 24 from Maidstone and a 17-year-old boy, also from Maidstone, were taken into custody on suspicion of theft of a motor vehicle.
All three were later released pending further investigation.
