Police Dog Ludo helped officers in Woking yesterday (5 January) track down a man believed to be after scrap metal who had broken into an abandoned building.
Officers managed to contain the outside of the multi-storey property on Chertsey Road, while dog handler PC George Larkin and PD Ludo entered.
PD Ludo used his expert honing skills to track the suspect down to the top floor where he was soon found hiding in a loft crawl space at the top of the central stairwell near the roof access. Up on the roof itself, PD Ludo went on to find a drill hidden under a slab.
A 49-year-old man from Woking was arrested on suspicion of burglary and has since been released under investigation.
PC Larkin said: “This has been a great start to the new year for Ludo and I’m very proud of him for his hard work and skill when it comes to searching for suspects.”
