A POLICE dog helped to catch as suspect who had fled in a Herefordshire town.

Police dog Brock was on patrol with his handler PC Surridge when they spotted a vehicle suspected of being involved in thefts.

Three suspects ran from the vehicle but Brock detained one of them while Leominster police officers caught a second suspect.


A statement on Twitter said: "PD Brock and PC Surridge were doubly busy yesterday, after locating the high risk missing person, they sighted a vehicle involved in thefts, three persons made off from the vehicle, with PD Brock quickly detaining one, & Leominster Cops catching another, enquiries ongoing to identify the third-so it was a late finish for our four pawed hero yesterday, and his chauffeur."
