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.’
