Two dogs were seized after police were called to suspected hare coursing near Calne.
Officers responded to reports from members of the public that a group of males had been seen in fields with lurchers off the A361 in the Cherhill area on Sunday (5 November).
As the Rural Crime Team arrived at around 2pm, the suspects left the fields and made off in a vehicle – driving at high speed – before the driver was stopped by a traffic officer on the A4.
Two passengers within the vehicle made off on foot and despite the efforts of a dog unit and the National Police Air Service helicopter, they were not located.
