Escaped hound turns volunteer police dog as man arrested in Preston
An escaped dog helped police recover a wanted suspect in Preston in the early hours of the morning.
Officers had just located the hound when it barked at two men who appeared to be hiding in a garden.
A spokesman for Lancashire Police's Armed Response Vehicle team said: "An ARV in Preston found this dog who had escaped from a nearby house.
"Whilst searching for the owner, two suspicious males were disturbed in nearby gardens.
"This adopted police dog barked on cue and the males surrendered - turns out he’s been wanted for some time."
The man was arrested at the scene.
