A man was arrested and drugs were seized following a police pursuit in Welwyn Garden City during the festive period.
At around 1am on Thursday 21 December, officers from Welwyn Hatfield Intervention pursued a vehicle which had failed to stop for them on Chequers.
The pursuit ended when the vehicle collided with vegetation in Ascots Lane.
The uninjured driver was arrested at the scene on suspicion of possession of cannabis with intent to supply, failing to stop for police and careless and inconsiderate driving.
A large quantity of cannabis was also seized.
The 29 year old man from London has now been bailed while enquiries continue.
Sergeant James Wingate said: “I hope that residents are reassured by this news.
“We remain committed to keeping the roads in Welwyn Hatfield safe and ensuring that the area is a hostile place for drug dealers to operate in.”
