West Midlands Police have released some thermal drone footage of the moment when a suspected car thief was sniffed out by police dog’s ‘Stavros’ and ‘Snow’.
Before hiding, the suspected thief had taken police on a high-speed pursuit through Birmingham that lasted 30 minutes.
The suspected thief was driving a stolen Ford Fiesta that had been taken off a driveway 24 hours earlier.
During the pursuit, the fleeing driver reached speeds of 70 miles per hour before abandoning the car on Broom Hill Road and running through gardens.
Control room staff called in a Drone team and police dogs to help officers search for the driver.
Minutes later, a teenager was arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving, theft of motor vehicle, failing to stop for police and driving without insurance.

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?
