After a police car was rammed in Matson last night, two of the males in the vehicle ditched their vehicle and fancied their chances on foot.
However, they had not counted on the fact that Police Dog ‘Quest’ and handler were already making their way to the area.
Upon arriving at the scene, PD Quest quickly picked up the putrid stench of the driver who had deliberately rammed the police car.
Following a successful track, PD Quest found the cowardly driver in a front garden, hiding underneath some bushes.
Local officers detained the passenger.
Both males were arrested, and no police officers or members of the public were hurt.
