Officers from the Norfolk and Suffolk Roads and Armed Policing Team also said the driver of the silver Volkswagen Golf tested positive for cocaine during a roadside test and was subsequently arrested.
They made the discovery in Stowmarket during the morning of Thursday, January 31.
Officers Tweeted a photograph of the vehicle shortly after the incident and wrote: “The driver of this vehicle in #Stowmarket had just finished the school run.
