Two suspects have spent the night in custody after being arrested with help from our canine cops in the early hours.
In Bury, our vehicle interceptors from TVIU spotted a suspicious vehicle on potentially cloned plates and were led towards a housing estate in the Radcliffe area before the driver ran away from the car.
A 22-year-old man was detained on suspicion of theft with support from the Tactical Dog Unit and NPAS, with the car believed to have been stolen from Salford in July.
A suspected thief was also taken to custody in Stockport after we received a report just before 2am of a man smashing a van window.
A 39-year-old man was detained by one of our four-legged friends and will be questioned on suspicion of theft from a motor vehicle.
