A police dog has been praised for his efforts after he successfully managed to hunt down a suspect who had rammed a police car before fleeing.
Police dog ‘Billy’ and his handler from Surrey & Sussex Police Dogs had been called in to help response team officers after the driver of a car fled following the incident during the early hours of this morning.
Once PD Billy had sniffed out the suspect, officers carried out a search of his address.
It soon became clear why the suspect had risked the lives of the police officers and other motorists as he fled from the scene after officers found a large quantity of Class ‘A’ and Class ‘B’ drugs at an address.
They also found deal bags, scales and thousands of pounds in cash.
