Avon & Somerset Police have recently released some body-worn video camera footage of the moment when one of their police dog handlers found a wanted male who had managed to slip off of the radar.
Knowing that he was wanted on a recall to prison, the male decided to live in a cave in the hope that he would not be found.
But it did not take PD ‘Jet’ and his handler long to locate the wanted male – right in the middle of his nighttime nap.
Thanks to PD ‘Jet’ and his handler, the male is now back behind bars, and the cave has once again been handed back to nature.
Thankfully, the male fully cooperated with PD ‘Jet’ and his handler and he was taken into custody without incident. It is not clear how long the male had been hiding in the cave for.
Watch the footage of Police Dog ‘Jet’ Below:
