Police dog tracks down suspect after shed break-in reports

A highly skilled police dog and handler tracked down and arrested a suspect after reports of an attempted shed break-in.

Dog units combed the area after receiving reports of an attempted shed break-in in High Street, Stanton Hill, Sutton-in-Ashfield, during the early hours of Sunday (20 August 2023).

Shortly after 4.30am, their persistence paid off after Police Dog Jax began tracking and located a suspect in Cottage Close.

A 37-year-old man from Sutton-in-Ashfield has since been charged with attempted burglary in connection with the alleged incident.

He is also charged with theft from a motor vehicle in relation to reports of tools stolen from a car in Cottage Close.
