Police are appealing for information after two people were arrested following a police pursuit in Chelmsford.
Officers responding to intelligence followed a Mazda Sport driving in High Bridge Road at around 11am yesterday.
The vehicle failed to stop and a pursuit was authorised with the car later found abandoned in Widford Road at 12.50pm.
The suspects fled on foot and police arrested a 17-year-old on suspicion of possession of an offensive weapon and drugs and failing to stop and a 16-year-old on suspicion of possession of drugs.
Both remain in custody for questioning.
Police received reports that the suspects were seen climbing and hiding in gardens, where officers later found a discarded knife and drugs.
Police have urged people living in the Widford Road area to check their gardens and any CCTV and call police if they see or find anything suspicious.
They also urge anyone with dash cam footage of the pursuit to also contact DI Daniel Stoten at Harlow Major Crime on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
