Three people have been arrested after a short police chase in the Wellington suburb of Kelburn.
A car containing a driver and two passengers was stopped in Kelburn about 3.45am this morning, a police communications spokesman said.
The car then sped away.
It was stopped again on Salamanca Rd after a short pursuit, but the three occupants fled.
Police cordoned off roads in the area and the trio were found 20 minutes later.
