Night-vision footage shows police chasing down drug dealer

Surrey Police have released dramatic footage of the moments their officers chased and caught a drug dealer in Epsom during the summer.

The chase took place near to the Kingston Bypass in Epsom, and was filmed from a National Police Air Service helicopter that assisted the county police force during the high speed chase.

Police said they spotted Kieran Beart "driving suspiciously along the A309 Kingston bypass...at 3.15am on June 4, 2019."

"He was noticed again in the Epsom area a short time later but made off at speed and was pursued until he stopped in Richards Field, Epsom and ran off over garden fences and through a field.

"Police Sergeant Chris Schultze from the Surrey and Sussex Roads Policing Unit who had pursued him in his car then followed on foot and was guided by NPAS across the field to Maple Close where he arrested Beart, as shown in the video footage," a spokesperson for Surrey Police said.

In the dramatic video footage, shot using a specialist camera on the helicopter equipped with a hi-tech form of night-vision, police can be seen chasing Mr Beart on foot as he scrambles over a fence and through what appears to be a hedgerow after abandoning his vehicle.

He is later seen surrendering to police.

Mr Beart, aged 21 and from Cambridgeshire, was found in possession of a rucksack that contained a quantity of drugs, pepper spray, knuckle duster and two knives, police said.

Since his arrest he was sentenced to 4 years and 6 months in prison and was banned from driving for 12 months.
