A Gwent Police dog has been praised after sniffing out a burglar who was in the process of getting rid of some vital evidence.
Police dog ‘Woody’ and his human colleagues from Gwent Police Operations and Support team were called following a burglary.
Officers located the vehicle used in the despicable crime a short time later, and PD ‘Woody’ and his handler were called in to try and sniff out the vile thieves.
After a short track, PD Woody found the thief who was in the process of trying to get rid of some vital evidence.
The thief was taken into custody without further incident.
A spokesperson for Gwent Police said: ‘The talents of our canine companions are an invaluable crime-fighting tool for us at Gwent Police.’
One social media user said: ‘What an awesome, brave good boy Woody is! I wanna cuddle him.’
Another added: ‘Good boy PC Woody I hope you got a extra special treat after.’

WE NEED YOUR HELP.Here at Emergency Services News, we aim to tell you stories that the mainstream media are not interested in reporting. Whilst the MSM love to berate and ridicule the emergency services, who is there to report on the realities of serving on the front line?
Emergency Services News is currently a loss-making entity. But our team of volunteers, all former emergency services personnel, do not do it for the money.
We do it because we are sick and tired of the mainstream media constantly trying to undermine the men and women who put their lives on the line to keep you and your family safe.
How many MSM journalists who speak ill of the emergency services have actually dared to don the uniform and risk their own lives to save the life of a complete stranger?
