‘The dog pictured was the third member of the household.

‘Despite numerous conversations, neither the homeowner or his fugitive visitor could explain who the dog belonged to or the dog’s name.

‘A quick scan of the chip reader came up with a negative result and officers unwilling to leave the dog in a property with a plethora of drugs and weapons lying about took her back to the station for tea and biscuits.

‘The dog spent the night in kennels before being signed over by the arrested male and is now looking for a new home.’
