Officers were called at 12.10am today to reports of glass being smashed at King Edward VI School in Grove Road and on arrival saw a vehicle leaving the scene.
Police pursued the vehicle onto the A14 before it left the carriageway at Risby and then collided with street furniture.
Officers arrested a 33-year-old man from London in the car park of Claas UK in Risby on suspicion of burglary and are still hunting another man in connection with the incident.
The man was taken to Bury St Edmunds Investigation Centre and has since been bailed until August 1.
