A force spokesman said: “After a bit of cat and mouse the driver of the Merc went all Clingon and used his cloaking device.
"This however led Ace to Manor Road at which point he saw this quad.
"The rider immediately went into bloke mode and clearly could not judge size, trying to squeeze the quad between the BMW and the wall.
"After sitting back for a short giggle we went Hot Fuzz as the perp did a cheeky bonnet roll and scarpered like a rabbit on crack.
“Anyway not all was lost the quad was seized, suspect stolen, as was the BMW.”
He added: “While the officer was ensuring that his hair had not been ruffled, the call came in that the Mercedes had been found close by.”
