    Written by on August 6, 2019

    A police dog has helped officers to arrest a man in Clackmannanshire.

    A car failed to stop for officers at Whins Road in Alloa, during the early hours of this morning (6th Aug).

    The vehicle was later found abandoned in a wooded area, just off the A 977.

    PD ‘Chase’ was deployed and led officers to a nearby area, where a 49-year-old was arrested in connection with road traffic offences.

    Inspector Andrew Thomson, from Forth Valley’s Road Policing Unit commented,”This arrest was a result of excellent team work by Road Policing Officers and our Dog Unit colleagues.

    “Our police dogs provide invaluable support to their human colleages during search activity and we are very lucky to have such amazing resources at our disposal.

    “Well done to PD Chase, PC Inglis and the Road Policing Officers involved in this incident.”
