Officers pursued the vehicle off-road and soon brought it to a stop. The driver and passenger then abandoned their vehicle and tried to run away on foot but were swiftly caught.
The two occupants of the car, a 50 year-old Doncaster man and a 50 year-old Cawood man were both arrested on suspicion of money laundering and conspiracy to supply class A drugs.
Following the arrests, officers undertook a search of a nearby farm where a 49 year-old Cawood woman was also arrested on suspicion of money laundering and conspiracy to supply class A drugs.
Extensive searches of the property recovered large quantities of class A drugs which have been seized and the investigation is ongoing. The two men and woman remain in police custody.
