The burglary happened at around 8pm on Wednesday (6 March) at a property on Benhams Drive where jewellery, a laptop and a car were stolen.

The stolen car was driven off by Dodge and another passenger, Surrey police said. It was then spotted around 40 minutes later, waiting at a red light on a junction on the M25.

After a short pursuit, officers arrested the passenger, a 23-year-old woman from Hackney, on suspicion of burglary and possession of a class B substance. She has since been released under investigation, police said.

The driver of the car, Dodge, assaulted two police officers and then fled the scene. Both officers’ injuries are not serious, according to police.

Dodge is thought to have links to east Surrey and Hackney as well as Hastings.
