A suspect was sniffed out by a police dog and arrested – shortly after a car failed to stop for officers.
PD Chase found the man hiding in a garage behind a pool table, into which a bag of drugs had been stuffed.
The incident began in Shelton Street, St Ann’s, at around 2.40am on Thursday when officers began following a suspicious vehicle.
The car was then driven away at high speed and pursued by officers through the local area.
After coming to a stop in Boynton Drive, the driver fled the scene, and a local containment was put in place by multiple officers.
PD Chase quickly picked up a scent and led his handler to a property in Kenrick Road where the suspect was detained.
A 26-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving, failing to stop, driving whilst disqualified, drug driving, and possession of a class B drug.
PC Mark Rushby, of Nottinghamshire Police, said:
“This was a great bit of police work by all involved and another good advert for our team of police dogs and their handlers.
“In situations like this the tracking skills of dogs like Chase are absolutely invaluable and allow us to catch up with suspects who may otherwise have got away.”
